    I found your link on the myth of self-control particularly interesting, thank you! I think portraying the marshmallow test in a different light of as to the reasons behind the reactions whether than a blanket statment of “this child is better at self control tha this one” is a fascinating perspective.

    Darya – lately your blog is filled with bad science websites… let’s get back to proper science please 🙂

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for these related links. Perfect timing. Especially enjoyed reading “red is good.”

    I have seen the duck/bunny picture before, I always see the bunny. I wonder what that means? Fascinating article!

    I really like the idea of “diluting the power of temptation” from “The myth of self control.” It says, “The students who exerted more self-control were not more successful in accomplishing their goals. It was the students who experienced fewer temptations overall who were more successful…” Very interesting way to go about succeeding – avoid situations that require you to resist the things that tempt you away from your goals in the first place.
