On Marshmallows, Rings, and Rats.
Powell, William
International Schools Journal, v17 n2 p41-51 Apr 1998
Ponders the very different lives of two successful businessmen who were considered school failures at age 14. Attributes their success in life to their ability to control impulsivity and substitute thoughtful planning for immediate gratification. As three experiments demonstrate, success depends on challenging oneself and exerting positive control over one's environment. (10 references) (MLH)
