Title ExplanationEdit

Delayed gratification is a term that denotes the ability to wait to get something such as a reward some delay after work or effort. As shown by the Stanford marshmallow experiment, the ability to delay gratification is strongly correlated with future successes. It is a related trait to conscientiousness. In this example, it refers to the specific example of Harry accepting other people taking dominance over him, to gain additional power and success in the long-term.
