Marshmallow test

Oh, The Temptation from Steve V on Vimeo.

The above video is a psychological experiment created in the 1960s (but the above video was not created back then). scientists expose children with one marshmallow on the table and tell them that they can either wait until the lady comes back and they’ll get another marshmallow or they can eat it right then and there and when the lady comes back they’ll still get another marshmallow.

The overall experiments tests how children make situations work for them. Most kids that went through this test 50 years ago showed their result in their overall life style
