Since the detection of high and low self-discipline based on self-reported measures is problematic due to validity problems, we have proposed an objective method based on physiological EEG data. Using a fine grained EEG spectrum in combination with machine learning, we were able to build a stable, reliable classifier, which reaches an accuracy of almost 76 percent. Moreover, we show that there are systematic differences in the theta and beta frequencies. Predicting low self-discipline and high self-discipline is an important topic in learning (especially e-learning) research as well as in medicine.
