I read this article because it was about temptation, and how to control it. The article talks about how people who can control their temptation as children will be more successful later in life. In the article it talks about an experiment made to test peoples will power. It either you eat 1 treat right away, or you eat 2 treats later. I could relate to some of the people in the experiment because of my lack of will power. I always tell myself that I should only eat a few cookies, or go to bed early, but I find myself that I’ve eaten the entire box of cookies, or that I end up going to bed at 2am in the morning. What i liked about the writing style was that it was informative. almost every paragraph gave tips, or facts on how to deal with temptation.
