I’ve played some strategy games – mostly Heroes of Might and Magic III, but also Age of Empires 2, Red Alert (yes, first version), Warcraft I and II. Others too, of course. Let me share you one thought about them.
Let’s say you want to resist doing something. How do you do that? According to a study nicely explained by Joachim de POSADA, the solution is quite simple: – Delayed gratification – think of the benefit you can get of resisting the urge to do that thing; – Distraction – focus your mind on something else, snap out of it. PS, 2018.08.03: some people, after finding out about the famous Stanford marshmallow experiment, suggested one shouldn’t eat the marshmallow at all. :)
