we found that even today, children's fondness for sweets is no different than it was in 1968 when Michelle first conducted the experiment. Children have different strategies for resisting temptation. Some people knock themselves on the head; some kick under the table; and some (less intelligent) people keep staring at what they want. Over time, temptation becomes more and more irresistible, and children start to touch or smell their marshmallows, even take a bite, and pretend it doesn't count. Most of them surrendered. In Michelle's original experiment, barely a third of the children survived fifteen minutes, and many even ate it right away. But what's most striking about the study is that the children's behavior was related to other problems at school. People who phone database eat marshmallows quickly seem to be unable to sit still and pay attention in class, and they are also the ones most likely to break the rules and get into fights. In general, older children did perform better in this experiment. But those who performed poorly for their age also had more problems with discipline or school performance. The results of the study were intriguing to Michelle and made him decide to focus on why some children perform better than others? In addition to the fact that the ability to resist temptation is inherently poor, Michelle noticed that children who performed better adopted different strategies. He even found that it helped impatient children to endure a little longer if they had them cover the marshmallow, or told them they could think of the marshmallow as, for example, "a fluffy cloud." Strategies vary as children grow up. As Michelle puts it: "If it's a six-year-old, it's a little different. But if it's a nine-year-old, it's very different. And so on. But when they first start The age at which it is done (three or four years old), for children, if they really want to make things easier, they need to know that they can turn their attention to other things…”
