True Grit or the Marshmallow Effect Researchers have found that grit, self-regulation, is more important to success than IQ, grades, or even SAT scores. In the 60’s at Stanford University, Walter Mischel did a series of experiments testing the willpower of children. Follow up studies showed that the kids who were able to delay gratification years later had higher SAT scores, better social skills, even lower body mass. In this presentation will examine the research on grit, particularly that done by Angela Duckworth and Carol Dweck. I will be sharing ideas about how grit can be taught, plus tons of books on the subject.
