Study: Passing the marshmallow test may be more about smarts than self-control
from Education Week
The historic "marshmallow test" has tied young children's ability to delay gratification to their long-term success, but a new, larger study replicating the famous study puts those long-term results in doubt. Using a significantly larger and more diverse group of children than the original study, researchers from New York University and the University of California, Irvine, compared 4-year-olds' ability to delay gratification to their academic and behavioral progress in 1st grade and at age 15.
