I don't think that I would be so addicted to marshmallows that I can't wait, but if it were something like an ice-cream sundae or a big piece of chocolate, and even then, I would be able to wait for another one. But if it were at that point in life when I was addicted to those marshmallows, I would (and probably would have been able to) wait to get a second one. ~Noah :D(P.S. Patience Pays!!!)
I think I would have just waited until the ten minutes was up. I believe that I have self-control; but maybe that skill develops with age. I remember that we talked about this test last year and this point was brought up. Also, self-control is a very important skill to have in the future because in life, you will have to wait to get what you want. If you’re one of those people that doesn’t have any patience, then you probably won’t do good socially, and educationally.
If I were a toddler in the marshmallow challenge I would wait because two marshmallows are better than one. Also self-control is a very important thing to have. Now you are probably thinking that a marshmallow isn't a big deal…… THINK OF THE BIGGER PICTURE!
I think that if I did the marshmallow test as a kid, I probably would have eaten it, but I am not 100% sure what I would have done. Self control can help you because you will be more patient, persistent, and put more effort. You will also not break down easily.
I think if I did the marshmallow test, I would have grabbed the marshmallow after about 2 minutes because… it’s a marshmallow! Self control would help you in the long run because it will make you patient and you will not break down instantly.
When I was younger I probably would have waited and then I might have gotten bored and fallen asleep. But now that I am older I would wait for 2 marshmallows by finding a way to entertain myself because I get a double the reward for exercising or doing fun things. It's a win-win situation I can't lose.
I love to daydream and do deep thinking thats what I would do most of the time. so I have lots of self control. I did a challenge when I was young (I put a piece of gum in front of myself and I never ate it!!)so just wait and think t-w-o m-a-r-s-h-m-e-l-l-o-w-s not one just ten minutes... thats what I would do-Anderson out! :)
I think as a preschooler I wouldn’t eat the marshmallow, even though I didn't have the best self-control, but two marshmallows are always better than one. I didn’t have the best self-control, but I was pretty patient, and I still am reasonably patient, all though I did get frustrated a lot. - Lucas
I am currently unsure whether I would pass or fail the marshmallow test, because I can’t really remember what I was like back then. Therefore, if I tried the marshmallow challenge at my age I could probably resist because I only have lots of sugar on special occasions (hey, marshmallows are ENTIRELY made of sugar). So, only things like steak, buffalo chicken wings, or green apple and watermelon flavoured candies would give me a challenge.
I think I definitely have better self-control now, so I am going to put two scenarios: What Pre-School Me Would’ve Done, and What 11 year old Me Would’ve done.Pre-School: I probably would’ve eaten half of it, then argued with the person that I ate it. My excuse would be that it fell and was eaten by a mouse. But, 3 year old me is horrible at lying and I would be giggling the entire time and end up not getting another marshmallow.11 year old: I would probably start a conversation with whoever was in the room (presumably my brother and sister), therefore forgetting about the whole marshmallow thing. So, now I have much better self-control.I think that self-control helps in the long run because, you won't have a melt-down instantly, and you know what is acceptable and what is not. I mean, who wants to hire someone that cries when they don't get what they want?
I think that as a preschooler, I would have left the marshmallow and got the second one. I would've left it because I have self-control (unlike my brother). If I was doing the test with my brother and sister (in preschool): I would've left the marshmallow, my brother would've eaten it and my sister would have tried to trick my parents by eating some of it and saying she didn’t.I think self-control helps because when you're older (and even now) you won't freak out because you don't get something, that's just annoying.
If I was in preschool and did the marshmallow test I think I would get another marshmallow. If my brother was there he would probably eat the first marshmallow, then I would say something like: ha ha I have two marshmallows and, mmmmm, this is so good. I think self-control will help a lot in the future.
I think that if you’re talking about me right now I would definitely wait and get the second marshmallow and eat it slowly to taunt the other person. Although if you mean me in preschool then I would have never been allowed to eat marshmallows unless it was a special occasion, but I was a terrible liar, and if I ever lied I wouldn’t have been able to live with the guilt therefor if I did the marshmallow test in preschool I would have ended up giving the other person my marshmallow, and if they gave me the other marshmallow I would refuse to eat it, and tell them about my strict healthy diet. (Placed by: my mom)
If I was younger and I had a choice of eating a marshmallow immediately or waiting to get a second marshmallow, I would probably choose to get the second marshmallow, but often I get impatient if I wait at least 1 hour or longer without having anything to do. If I was my current age today and was given that test, I wouldn’t really care what I chose.
When I was a preschooler I never had marshmallows and so I will do a different scenario if the book Broken Ground is always in front of me for a week and I don’t read it I get Thor’s Hammer (the new Magnus Chase book) for free. Personally I Think I would last 3-4 days because soon I would just read it. I think self control is important but sometimes I have trouble with it
I enjoyed reading your responses - very interesting!
