How do people evaluate current rewards relative to future (delayed) rewards

If you offer 100 people $50 today or $60 in two months, some will choose the smaller reward now, others will choose the larger reward later. The way people evaluate current versus future rewards is partially genetic and has broad implications for a variety of health outcomes. We have already published on this paradigm (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41593-017-0032-x) but much more data is needed, ideally in subject for whom we also have multiple other rich data types.
