The Marshmallow Experiment - Instant Gratification
 
04:43
We ran a duplicate of Stanford University's "Marshmallow Experiment" with our own Flood kids (Google it for the details). If they could delay gratification by sitting in a room alone with one marshmallow until the facilitator got back, they would be rewarded with an additional marshmallow. If they cracked, succumbed to temptation by eating the marshmallow before she returned, they would not be rewarded with an additional one. We hid 2 cameras in the room to watch the hilarious results.

the marshmallow experiment | Instant gratification
 
01:49
The Stanford marshmallow experiment was a series of studies on delayed gratification in the late 1960s and early 1970s led by psychologist Walter Mischel, then a professor at Stanford University. In these studies, a child was offered a choice between one small reward provided immediately or two small rewards (i.e., a larger later reward) if they waited for a short period, approximately 15 minutes, during which the tester left the room and then returned. (The reward was sometimes a marshmallow, but often a cookie or a pretzel.) In follow-up studies, the researchers found that children who were able to wait longer for the preferred rewards tended to have better life outcomes, as measured by SAT scores, educational attainment, body mass index (BMI), and other life measures.

The Marshmallow Test | How To Delay Gratification & Build Willpower
 
06:09
The Marshmallow Test were a series of experiments conducted by Professor Walter Mischel and his team at Sandford university during the 1960s. The subjects of the tests were hundreds of children aged between four and five years old. The premise of the test was to grasp a greater understanding of the effects of delayed gratification. The kids were given an ultimatum by researchers, they were told that they could eat a single marshmallow or wait fifteen minutes and be granted a second marshmallow. If they ate their marshmallow before the fifteen minutes elapsed they would not receive the second marshmallow. The children had different reactions across the board. Some children would eat the marshmallow instantly and others would distract themselves until the researcher had returned. The data of the experiment was collected, and the children were tracked over the next forty years. An astonishing pattern was recognized among the children that had successfully weathered the storm and received the second marshmallow. These children on average went on to have: - Higher SAT scores - Lower rates of obesity - Better stress tolerance + Many other positive life metrics. So, the question that needs to be asked is; “How can we build our willpower and learn to delay gratification?” I have thought about this for a while and have come up with the following suggestions: One: Build systems and traps for the future When you are grocery shopping and fill up your cart with carrots, kale and cabbages that you intend on eating later, do not make the erroneous assumption that many fall into. The error comes when we assume that; when the time arrives to eat the vegetables we will be in the same headspace as when we were buying them. The reality is, the person who opens the fridge later that night and makes a choice between the vegetables and the cake might as well be someone else! You are at battle with that future version of you, it is up to present you to set traps and systems to ensure that future you isn’t bamboozled by instant gratification. These systems might be as simple as removing all other foods from your fridge before filling it up with healthy alternatives. The traps you lay might be to promise a loved one a video of you eating the food. The idea of this preventive way of thinking is to ensure that future you will have to face an incredible amount of resistance when regarding any other alternatives to the choices that you have made prior. If you want to go for a run in the morning make sure to hide your remote and have your sneakers by your bed. Lower the resistance and make it easy for future you to comply. Two: Start small and build up The children that waited for two marshmallows did not later go on to succeed in life simply because of that one test. The same attitude they showed in the test demonstrated the ethos of their lives. These children would delay gratification in a range of other matters. If we wish to build up our capacity of delaying gratification we must start small and build up. Just like anything we do, we can internalize the mindset until it becomes automatic. Once it becomes automatic the rest will be a breeze. Here are some things you could consider doing: - Making your bed before you go out and have your breakfast - Exercising before you watch TV - Reading a book before you surf the net - Eating your food at a normal pace when hungry - Not cutting people off during conversations and listening attentively The world we are living in is conducive to the ‘instant gratification’ mentality, become an outlier and wait for your second marshmallow.

Psychology: Delay of Gratification predicts Success? - Mischel's Marshmallow Experiment Revisited
 
21:00
Only a few experiments drew as much attention as the famous "marshmallow experiments" by Walter Mischel. To test the ability of self-control, Mischel & Co. confronted hundreds of children with a difficult decision: "You can either eat a small amount of sweets (e.g., one marshmallow) right now or you wait for a larger amount of sweets (e.g. two marshmallows)." Many years later the researchers observed an amazing correlation (Mischel et al., 1988; Shoda et al., 1990): Those children who had been able to delay the gratification, were rated higher in social competence, frustration tolerance and academic success. In addition, they even showed better performance in the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). However, especially the calculated correlations with the SAT scores were based on a very small sample (N = 35). Therefore the recently published replication by Duckworth, Tsukayama and Kirby (2013) is highly important to back up the results of the original marshmallow experiments. Keywords: Walter Mischel - Marshmallow Experiment - Delay of Gratification - Delay Time at age of four - correlation - social competence, academic competence, frustration tolerance - SAT Scores - small sample size - replications - Duckworth, Tsukayama, Kirby - 966 children - smaller correlation

In these studies, children between 3-4 years were offered a choice between one small reward provided immediately or two small rewards if they waited for approximately 15 minutes, when the tester would return after having left the room. (The reward was sometimes a marshmallow, but often a cookie or a pretzel.) In follow-up studies, the researchers found that children who were able to wait longer for the preferred rewards tended to have better life outcomes, as measured by SAT scores, educational attainment, body mass index (BMI) and other life measures. The above is a recent experiment done based on the same methodology.

3yrs old The Stanford marshmallow experiment refers to a series of studies on delayed gratification in the late 1960s and early 1970s led by psychologist Walter Mischel, then a professor at Stanford University. In these studies, a child was offered a choice between one small reward (sometimes a marshmallow, but often a cookie or a pretzel, etc.) provided immediately or two small rewards if he or she waited until the experimenter returned (after an absence of approximately 15 minutes). In follow-up studies, the researchers found that children who were able to wait longer for the preferred rewards tended to have better life outcomes, as measured by SAT scores, educational attainment, body mass index (BMI) and other life measures. However, recent work calls into question whether self-control, as opposed to strategic reasoning, determines children's behavior. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_marshmallow_experiment

The Marshmallow Test - Is it really self-control? (Psychology, Social Trust, Willpower)
 
23:41
For a long time the famous "marshmallow studies" by Walter Mischel were regarded as prototypical experiments to measure self-control. However, in some studies only low correlations to other measures of self-control were observed. Thus, in recent years alternative hypotheses were tested. For example: If the delay of gratification task is regarded as problem solving situation, longer waiting times could be explained by problem solving skills (intelligence). Other scientists hypothesize, that the decision to wait might be linked to the amount of trust in the experimenter (Kidd et al. 2013). But are these new research approaches adequate to explain the amazing predictive power of the marshmallow experiment? Keywords: Marshmallow Test - Marshmallow Experiment - Delay of Gratification - self-control - intelligence - social skills - grade point average - frustration tolerance - predictive validity - Duckworth - Kirby - replication - social trust - social psychology - cognitive psychology - educational psychology - mind - brain - developmental psychology - delay discounting - Walter Mischel
A modified Walter Mischel test (a.k.a marshmallow test)
 
15:40
Inspired by the New York Times opinion piece on Sep 14th by Pamela Druckermann, I decided to give the marshmallow test to Shivani (our to-be 6 yr old). For more info on Walter Mischel's original experiment, check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_marshmallow_experiment I modified the experiment with two important changes (Replacing marshmallow with Hershey's Kisses, while a change, was not one of them) The NYT opinion piece brought about a crucial insight from Mr. Mischel himself based on his willpower research - that Distancing and distracting are powerful tools not just for 5 year olds but adults as well.. So, instead of forcing her to stare at the chocolate for the duration, I provided a setting with many books on the table (a distraction aid, so to speak). Also, ever since I learnt about the Mischel experiment in school, I wanted to try what the effect of peer pressure is. i.e., on his/her own a subject may avoid the temptation and keep the bigger picture of higher reward in mind. But, in the presence of peer pressure, like what happens in real life, how does that influence the subject? So, our son (soon to be 4) in this experiment serves as an agent of peer-pressure (I am sure he would hate me when he grows up) and our daughter is the real subject. and of course neither of them knows anything about Mischel or Marshmallow experiment..
