The marshmallow test…

Temptation, thy name is marshmallow…

Oh, The Temptation from Steve V on Vimeo.

The first time I heard about this experiment was on Radiolab. The segment Mischel's Marshmallow aired March 9, 2009. You'll hear from Walter Mischel and Jonah Lehrer. The New Yorker ran a recent article by Jonah Lehrer on the same topic. I have to say, though, that a movie is worth a thousand words!

  1. I loved this clip, all along I was trying to decide which kid I would be… a real example of how we all respond to temptation. I think I would be the boy who waited and then stuffed them both in my mouth at the end. Who would you be?
