Training pigeon to receive reward by not pecking on the light:

 

 

I've been told that in experiment with US university students about 2/3 could not (would not?) learn the pattern "if you don't do anything, you get reward". I don't have reference to the experiment unfortunately.

There is the Marshmallow Experiment, you don't eat one then later you get two,

Yeah, I know the Marshmallow Experiment. The one I refer to was something different and pretty recent AFAIK.

Are you talking about the experiment where students were willing to shock themselves rather than sit quietly with their own thoughts and do nothing?

 

I don't believe that's the one. :/ Shoulda asked for reference.

 

The one you mention is also interesting.  8) Pointers to it?
