Delay That Gratification
In this weeks episode we look at the importance of delaying gratification:
The link between delayed gratification and marshmallows
Going under the knife
BBL & surgery
and much more
This episode links to and was inspired by the Marshmellow Test.
The marshmallow test is one of the most famous pieces of social-science research: Put a marshmallow in front of a child, tell them that they can have a second one if they can go 15 minutes without eating the first one, and then leave the room. Whether they’re patient enough to double their payout is supposedly indicative of a willpower that will pay dividends down the line, at school and eventually at work. Passing the test is, to many, a promising signal of future success.
