The marshmallow test : mastering self-control by Walter Mischel( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: Eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behavior later in life? The world's leading expert on self-control, Walter Mischel has proven that the ability to delay gratification is critical for a successful life, predicting higher SAT scores, better social and cognitive functioning, a healthier lifestyle and a greater sense of self-worth. But is willpower prewired, or can it be taught? In The Marshmallow Test, Mischel explains how self-control can be mastered and applied to challenges in everyday life--from weight control to quitting smoking, overcoming heartbreak, making major decisions, and planning for retirement. With profound implications for the choices we make in parenting, education, public policy and self-care, The Marshmallow Test will change the way you think about who we are and what we can be"--
Personality and assessment by Walter Mischel( Book )

33 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After many ""out-of-print"" years, this volume has been reissued in response to an increasing demand for copies. This reflects that the fundamental questions that motivated this book thirty years ago are still being asked. But more important, the answers -- or at least their outlines -- now seem to be in sight. In 1968, this book stood as an expression of a paradigm crisis in its critique of the state of personality psychology. The last three decades have been filled with controversy and debate about the dilemmas raised here, and then with renewal and fresh discoveries. It therefore seems espe
Advances in personality science by Daniel Cervone( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This definitive volume lays the foundations for an interdisciplinary science of personality. Leading investigators present novel insights and findings from molecular genetics, child and life-span developmental psychology, neuroscience, dynamical systems theory, evolutionary psychology, and social cognition, as well as personality psychology itself, illuminating--and often reformulating--fundamental questions about the nature of personhood. The book sheds new light on the nature and origins of personality and individual differences, and challenges many traditional assumptions. It also points to

The marshmallow test : [mastering self-control] by Walter Mischel( Recording )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behavior later in life? Walter Mischel's now iconic Marshmallow Test proved that the ability to delay gratification is critical to a successful and fulfilling life. Not only does self-control predict higher SAT scores, better social and cognitive skills, and a greater sense of self-worth, but also helps us manage stress, pursue goals more effectively, and cope with painful emotions. But is will-power pre-wired, or can it be taught? Mischel explores the nature of willpower and offers tips and strategies for improving and mastering self-control and applying it to everyday challenges like losing weight, quitting smoking and overcoming heartbreak
The marshmallow test : understanding self-control and how to master it by Walter Mischel( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: Eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behaviour later in life? Walter Mischel's now iconic 'marshmallow test,' one of the most famous experiments in the history of psychology, proved that the ability to delay gratification is critical to living a successful and fulfilling life. Dr. Mischel draws on decades of compelling research and life examples to explore the nature of willpower, identifying the cognitive skills and mental mechanisms that enable it and showing how these can be applied to challenges in everyday life, from weight control to quitting smoking, overcoming heartbreak, making major decisions, and planning for retirement

Moral Behavior from a Cognitive Social Learning Viewpoint by Walter Mischel( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper deals with one view of cognitive social learning and its applications to the psychological analysis of moral competence and moral conduct. The concept of cognitive and behavioral construction competencies is explained and cognitive competencies are said to be among the very best predictors of "honesty" in conduct. Moral competence includes the ability to reason about moral dilemmas, the skill of role-taking, and the kind of empathy required to take account of long-term consequences of actions as they affect other people. Although an individual may be capable of moral conduct, his decision on whether to act morally at any given time depends on his behavior-outcome expectancies. The young child's behavior is governed primarily by expected immediate, concrete consequences for himself, but as he matures the evaluation and reinforcement of his behavior become increasingly independent of external rewards and punishments and include more temporally distant and abstract considerations and self-reactions. It is thus concluded that age-related changes in the style and content of moral reasoning and conduct reflect changes in the individual's cognitive and verbal capacities in interaction with the social learning variables salient for him at different points in the life cycle.

On the Future of Personality Measurement by Walter Mischel( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents an overview of the knowledge afforded man from research into personality. Approaching his topic from a position valuing the study of persons from complementary psychological perspectives, the author attempts to derive some conclusion about human behavior and personality. He discusses the findings that there is basic continuity in personality; each person is capable of great differentiation in behavior; there are multiple determinants of human behavior; and there is a need to analyze social and psychological environments in order to understand individual behavior. From this common ground, the author suggests the need to specify clearly the goals, purposes and objectives of personality research. Different goals require different foci and different measurement strategies. The author views humans as active organisms interacting in active environments, where person variables must be taken into account so as to understand this interaction. In conclusion, the author suggests that researchers actively involve subjects in their own personality assessments, that information processing may yield increased knowledge of personality, and that a synthesis of various psychological constructs is needed. He further suggests an image of man as an active, aware problem-solver who is multi-faceted, multiply influenced, uniquely organized, yet open to study by scientific methods. (Sjl)
