This was actually a behavioral experiment conducted years ago, seeming to correlate with SAT scores later in life. Here's the RadioLab segment on it:

Interesting to listen to. I totally would have eaten the marshmallow.

Your link is broken, but assuming it says what I think it will say... I disagree. That carrot top kid had no idea what the value of marshmallows would be in five minutes time, so she just got while the getting was good.

Just delete the space in the link, have we not learned this by now

Were these kids starved first? I've never been that excited or tormented about a marshmallow.

I think the reactions have more to do with being left in a room with nothing to do.

As a result of this experiment, that kid with the blond buzz cut is clearly going to go on to become a human rights lawyer prosecuting torture cases for the Hague.

Of course, when she came back they stuffed her behind a wall.

Man -- B.F. Skinner would've loved this. There's a whole section of Walden Two that sets up almost the same experiment, albeit with no reward.

They probably left them alone for 45 seconds.
Kids gots no patience.

A marshmallow saved is a marshmallow earned.

Can we get classic experiments week on POETV? Can we get some motherfucking Berko-Gleason up in here and shit?

Go here if you want to hear Philip Zimbardo expound on this experiment for an hour.

If this had been a Japanese game show, when the kid bit the marshmallow sirens would have gone of with 200 decibel pig squeals and projected images of dead fat people all over the walls.

Or maybe if it had just been my game show.

I wish that they included more footage of the kids when the lady comes back with the other marshmallow.
