The marshmallow test : mastering self-control by Walter Mischel( Book )
38 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,589 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 )
36 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 996 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 ( Book )
10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 350 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 toward compelling new directions for future work in the field

The marshmallow test : [mastering self-control] by Walter Mischel( Sound Recording )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 203 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

Moral Behavior from a Cognitive Social Learning Viewpoint by Walter Mischel( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 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.

Self-Instructional Plans and Children's Resistance to Temptation by Charlotte Patterson( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This study assesses the effects of three kinds of verbal plans, temptation-inhibiting plans, reward-oriented plans, and task-facilitating plans, on children's resistance to temptation. Each plan was studied in an elaborated and an unelaborated form. Subjects were 70 four-year olds, 35 boys and 35 girls. The major piece of apparatus employed was a talking Clown Box. Each child was shown a pegboard task, and warned that the Clown Box might tempt him to stop working, thus ensuring that he would be allowed to play only with some unattractive toys rather than with some special ones. The children were instructed in group-specific verbalizations to be repeated to the Clown Box. The main dependent measure assessed the proportion of time spent working by each child. Subjects in the elaborated temptation-inhibiting and elaborated reward-oriented plan conditions worked for a greater proportion of the test phase than those in other plan conditions and than those in the control conditions. Whether or not a self-instructional plan will facilitate a young child's self-control depends on the substantive or content nature of the plan, and its level of organization of structure.
