The Marshmallow Experiment

The marshmallow experiment is a famous study that focuses on peoples ability to fight their cravings.  In this experiment, a child is put into a room and given a single marshmallow.  The child has the option of eating the marshmallow right away, or wait 15 minutes and be awarded a second marshmallow.  See the short funny video below for how some of these children reacted.

Years after the experiment, a follow up study was performed on the same children.  What they found was that those who were able to resist the craving of eating the marshmallow, achieved better grades, higher test scores, and greater success in life.  Why?  Because those who are able to resist temptations and control their cravings are better able to focus on important things like school and work.  So... do you think you could resist the marshmallow?
