Marshmallow Experiments

Anyone around here either physically or online will have heard of the famous Mischel Marshmallow experiments that examined the patience of children, measured by their ability to delay consumption of a marshmallow in exchange for getting two marshmallows later on. We tried to replicate them here but we kept eating the marshmallows before we could recruit the participants.

Nudge blog has a description of the famous experiments along with some video - link here
