Link: The Marshmallow Test

Today seems to be Point To Other Sites day. This link points to an interesting article about an experiment that tested children's ability to delay gratification. That's the serious, scientific part of this topic.

This link points to a funny modern short film inspired by the experiment. Small children are given a marshmallow and encouraged to delay eating it, with a promised reward of another marshmallow.
