“It’s Not Simply That Life Does Things To Us…We In Turn Do Things To It,” Says Walter Mischel Of The Marshmallow Experiment

This is a quote from a very interesting interview at the BBC with Dr. Walter Mischel, the person who first devised the famous Marshmallow Experiment to measure self-control.It’s only thirty minutes, and is very interesting. It has a fair amount of background info that I have not read anywhere else.

You can read a lot more about the test, and how I apply it in the classroom, both in my last book and in The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control.
