The marshmallow test : mastering self-control by Walter Mischel( Book )
26 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,665 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 )
38 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,010 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 especially timely to revisit the pages which posed the challenges. Mischel outlined the need to encompass the situation in the study of personality, but with a focus on the acquired meaning of stimuli and on the situation as perceived, viewing the individual as a cognitive-affective being who construes, interprets, and transforms the stimulus in a dynamic reciprocal interaction with the social world. He focused on the idiographic analysis of personality that had originally motivated the field, and the complexity, discriminative facility, and uniqueness of the individual, and sought to connect the expressions of personality to the individual's behavior -- that is, to what people do and not just what they say. Even the intrinsically contextualized "if...then..." expressions of the personality system -- its essential behavioral signatures -- were foreshadowed in this book that fired the opening salvo in a search for "a truly dynamic personality psychology."
Readings in personality by Harriet N Mischel( Book )
10 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 339 libraries worldwide
Advances in personality science ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 326 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 )
8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 215 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

Wie Willensstärke unsere Persönlichkeit prägt Es ist das wohl berühmteste Experiment in der Geschichte der Psychologie: Ein Kind bekommt einen Marshmallow vorgesetzt und hat die Wahl - sofort aufessen oder warten, um später zwei zu bekommen? Wird es zögern oder zugreifen? Und was bedeutet diese Entscheidung für sein späteres Leben? Walter Mischel, weltbekannter Psychologe und Erfinder des Marshmallow-Tests, zeigt in seinem Buch, wie Selbstdisziplin unsere Persönlichkeit prägt - und wie sie uns, in gesundem Masse, hilft, unser Leben zu meistern. "Die Marshmallow-Studien gehören zu den aufschlussreichsten in der Geschichte der Psychologie. Wer dieses brillante Buch liest, wird die menschliche Natur mit anderen Augen betrachten." - Daniel Kahneman (Laufzeit: 9h 33)
