Maybe it's society that has changed since the 1960s so that those who now opt for instant gratification are no longer disadvantaged as much, or that those who are able to overcome temptation are no longer advantaged ....

I wonder whether those who go for instant gratification are more likely to suffer from lifestyle diseases such as obesity, though. I think in this day and age, overcoming/avoiding food temptations can be quite important for long-term health.
