‘Gimme’ Kids Often Grow Into ‘Gimme’ Adults Today In The Morning Zone

WUSA

A new study out shows that kids who have trouble resisting temptation are more likely than patient preschoolers to grow into adults who lack self-control, a new study suggests.

“What we’re seeing is that there are some individuals who consistently presented as high or low delayers,” lead study author B.J. Casey, a cognitive neuroscientist at the Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, said.

Prior research has shown that people who have trouble delaying gratification have lower SATs scores on average, higher body mass indexes (BMIs), higher divorce rates and a higher risk of substance abuse, Casey said. http://news.yahoo.com/gimme-kids-often-grow-gimme-adults-200606583.html
