English term or phrase: sophisticates
As these results indicate, even if people plan to behave virtuously tomorrow, want often trumps should when tomorrow arrives. Self-aware individuals sense this about themselves. Accordingly, these “sophisticates,” as they are known to researchers, have long shown a willingness to buy “commitment devices,” which help them commit in the present to choosing should rather than want in the future.
(Classic examples of commitment devices include piggy banks and diet treatment centers.)
