I describe an alternative approach that assumes that control emerges from the interaction of at least two counteracting forces: one system promoting persistence and the maintenance of action goals and another promoting mental and behavioral flexibility. I describe how this interaction might be shaped by various factors, including genetic predisposition, learning, personal experience, and the cultural context, and suggest a simple functional model (the Metacontrol State Model, MSM) that explains how this shaping process works.

Concepts that are used for such a long time and that have stimulated so much research are unlikely to be entirely incorrect, but I do think that they have limitations that need to be overcome in future research. I will thus present an alternative view of human action control, at least of some relevant aspects of it, that is also not without predecessors but has the advantage of providing a more dynamic, and thus probably more realistic, view of how humans keep their actions adaptive. I will begin by discussing two more traditional and popular views of action controldone assuming a will that is fighting against habits and another assuming an ego that mediates between societal requirements and personal urgesdand point out a number of limitations of these views.
