Don’t Eat The Marshmallow Yet

Could you wait for the second marshmallow?

You are given a marshmallow, but here’s the deal.  You can choose to eat your marshmallow now. But if you can wait 15 minutes, and not eat that marshmallow, you’ll be given a second marshmallow.

Could you wait for the reward?  Mischel’s research at Stanford Universtiy showed the ability to wait for a second marshmallow was an indicator of future success in life and career.

Recent research at Dunedin University focuses on the relationship between childhood self-control and social measures such as health, wealth and crime.
