Have you heard of the “Stanford Marshmallow Experiment” Mischel, Ebbesen, and Zeiss (1972)? I discovered it whilst studying Psychology and Education at Cardiff University. It was all about delayed gratification, what age it kicks in and how it also impacts future success in later life.

The longer kids were able to hold off on eating a marshmallow, the more likely they were to have higher SAT scores and fewer behavioral problems, the researchers said. The results were taken to mean that if only we could teach kids to be more patient, to have greater self-control, perhaps they’d achieve these benefits as well. via Brian Resnick

However, this article provides some more food for thought and questions the validity of the original study.

Either way, what do you reckon I did with this?
