Strategic Attention Deployment for Delay of Gratification in Working and Waiting Situations.
Peake, Philip K.; Hebl, Michelle; Mischel, Walter
Developmental Psychology, v38 n2 p313-26 Mar 2002
Two studies examined whether effects of attention to rewards during a delay of gratification task in waiting situations affects preschoolers' ability to delay gratification in working situations. Findings show that when work provides distraction, attention on rewards reduces delay time whether working or waiting; when work is not engaging, attention to rewards can motivate and facilitate delay of gratification.
