The Marshmallow Experiment - Instant Gratification - Will Power

So this morning I said to Rob get stuck into your homework early and then your have time at the end of the day, instead of procrastinating. So he says "I bet that test does work." This is a test that he had discussed in one of his classes at college. Where you take young children and sit them down with a test of self denial for something better.

According to what was discussed in Rob's class this can be an indicator of how well children will do in school.  Instant gratification or self denial for something better, see here

It's quite interesting, self control and achieving goals.
