Abstract

It's like the famous marshmallow tests done at Stanford University decades ago, when researchers gave some kids marshmallows and told them if they waited 15 minutes to eat them they'd get a second one.1 The kids who delayed gratification went on to have better lives, judged by a variety of measures, than the kids who didn't.
