In the study, each student was given one marshmallow along with a promise: if they could wait 15 minutes, they would get an additional marshmallow, thereby doubling their return on investment. One third of the students waited to receive an additional marshmallow, while the remainder succumbed to the immediate desire to eat the single one.
The experiment didn’t stop there.
