Interesting psychology but the cute factor rules here. My favorite kid is at the 3:05 mark.

1. It's adorable -
this was a dramatization, based on the research. The kids are actors, but I suspect the real kids were just as sweet.

I'm with you on the 3:05 kid - she wasn't fooling around. My kind of girl........................................

4. No zen like patience for me
I would have probably eaten the marshmallow before the woman even left the room. :9

9. Half an hour with nothing to do?
That's torture enough to a little kid but sticking something in front of them they want and telling them to defer gratification is really cruel.

I'm with that little girl who just ate the damned thing.

10. Yup, she's the one I relate to
She had the marshmallow in her mouth before the woman stopped instructing her.
