decision making - worth the wait

an article in "nature reviews":

"How do we control our impulses? If the choice is between a small treat now and a large treat later, most of us would choose the large treat, even though we have to wait for it. The inability to overcome the desire for immediate reward in this way is known as impulsive choice; it has been implicated in addiction, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and some personality disorders, but its cause is unclear."
