Don’t Eat The Marshmallow: Delayed Satisfaction

The Marshmallow Experiment was conducted by Stanford Psychologist Walter Mischel to test delayed satisfaction in children. It posed to the kids that if they could keep from eating the one marshmallow now. They would get two later.

The results were informative and funny..


Mischel’s experiment shows exactly what goes through most of our minds in moments where we are asked to “wait”. None of the kids were given a predefined period of time, but told that if they did, they would be rewarded.


Some kids ate it, others touched it and tasted it but didnt’ put it in their mouth.

What kind of kid are you?
