Self-Regulation [self-control]: Regulating what one feels and does; being disciplined; controlling one’s appetites and emotions. Personified for example by Jerry Rice (Source: VIA Institue)

The Noel Strengths Academy defines it this way:

  • When one is self-regulated, one is practicing self-control 
  • Self-regulation involves both feelings and actions 
  • Intentional in aligning choices with practices 
  • Able to discipline one’s natural inclinations for what is proper for the time and place
