Delayed gratification is the process when someone tries to resist the temptation to do something in the present in exchange for a bigger reward in the future. Everyone has their own approach to this: some people prefer a small piece of cake today instead of three full cakes in a week. Knowing how to delay pleasure to serve a more important goal is considered by psychologists to be a major character skill!
It is worth noting that delayed gratification is not simply learning how to suppress immediate desires, but rather the ability to overcome immediate difficulties and achieve long-term goals. Have you wondered how good you are at resisting temptation? Take our delayed gratification test and find out!
