內容簡介

你一定聽過《先別急著吃棉花糖》這本書,現在書中「棉花糖實驗」的研究者要親自現身說法!

心理學家米歇爾教授1960年代在史丹佛大學任教時,曾設計了一個「棉花糖實驗」。他和團隊找來許多孩子,每個孩子都可以選擇要馬上吃掉一顆棉花糖,還是要忍耐一下,晚一點吃就可以吃兩顆。孩子們會怎麼選擇呢?他們的選擇對於未來有影響嗎?

這個實驗是心理學界最經典的研究之一。研究發現願意忍耐一下的孩子,往往過得更充實、更成功。他們展現出的自制力,和未來的學業成績、社交及認知能力、對自身價值的認知都有關係,他們也更擅長管理壓力、追求目標,以及處理負面情緒。

但,這種意志力是天生的嗎?還是能靠後天學習呢?

米歇爾博士這本新書徵引了數十年來的研究成果以及真實的案例,要探討意志力的本質為何?有哪些認知小秘訣和心理機制可以加強意志力?又如何運用於日常生活中?比如:如何靠意志力來減重、戒菸、走出失戀、做出重大抉擇,以及計畫退休?「棉花糖實驗」中所測試的自制能力,其實影響了生活的方方面面,大至訂定公共政策,小至打理個人生活,都有影響。另一方面,過猶不及,太過自制和不夠自制一樣不好,因此本書也將告訴你什麼時候可以放鬆一下,好好品嘗棉花糖!

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: self-control not only predicts higher marks in school, better social and cognitive functioning, and a greater sense of self-worth; it also helps us manage stress, pursue goals more effectively, and cope with painful emotions. But is willpower prewired, or can it be taught? 

In his groundbreaking new book, 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. 

With profound implications for the choices we make in parenting, education, public policy and self-care, The Marshmallow Test will change the way we think about who we are and what we can be. And since, as Mischel argues, a life with too much self-control can be as unfulfilling as one with too little, this book will also teach you when it’s time to ring the bell and enjoy that marshmallow.
