DELAY OF GRATIFICATION
The ability to forgo an immediate reward for a larger, future reward
Mischel (1966), aka “The Bing Study”Method:
- Children are shown either oreos or marshmellows (depending on what they like)
they are told that they have to wait for thirty minutes and at the end they will get
double. They are left in a room alone with a plate of either the oreos or the
marshmellows in front of them. Researchers see how long it takes them to ring
the button.
Long-Term Outcomes of the Ability to Delay Gratification:
Later in life, those who can delay gratification:
-Higher verbal and math SAT scores
-Parents rated the children as:
Better able to concentrate
Better able to cope with frustration and stress
-Parents and teachers rated the children as:
Greater cognitive and social competence ratings
