I want a Marshmallow

This video is classic psych experiment on delayed gratification. It is cute and funny to watch these kids struggle (or just give in right away) with waiting to get a second marshmallow. It gets a little less cute when you read this New Yorker article and start to realize that the kids who can’t wait are less likely to be high achievers in life. Sucks that a marshmallow could be a sign pointing towards either a PhD or burger flipper at McDonalds.
