I saw Zimbardo speak with zeal on the topic at the New York Academy of Sciences last week. If you're a future-oriented person—able to wait for your marshmallows—you likely set goals and meet them, save money, and finish your work on time. For the gobblers among us, the present-oriented, well, I'm afraid the gobblers are a bit screwed. Pain, sickness, financial ruin, addiction, death, and hell. That's verbatim from one of Zimbardo's Power Point slides. Sorry—probable pain, sickness, financial ruin, addiction, death, and hell.
