- Daniel Goleman: The Marshmallow Test
- Daniel Goleman is a leading advocate for the soft skills necessary for success. He is most widely known for his work on Emotional Intelligence – the concept that a high IQ is not the only factor that helps determine the success a person will get in their life. Related to that is the idea of the Marshmallow Test. The idea is that someone who can forgo the immediate reward of eating a single marshmallow now to get two later, will do better in their life.
