Would you pay more for an hour of happiness or an hour of avoiding sadness?

By | 2017-04-01T08:58:33+00:00 April 1st, 2017|Categories: Interesting Facts|Tags: , , |

 

The participants were willing to pay more for a pleasant experience than simply avoiding an unpleasant time. The subjects most valued an hour of love (about 120USD) than happiness and sadness.

To avoid an hour of disgust, which ranked in last place, the respondents said they would pay an average of 55USD.

The effect of the valuation of emotions depends on a person’s culture. The British would pay the most for happiness, joy and peace, while the Japanese are willing to pay more for avoiding grief, shame, and frustration.

Scientists believe that avoiding a negative experience is more important for a person’s well-being than having a positive experience.

They share the attitudes of the Japanese people, who focus primarily on social expectations, and not on their own personal welfare.

An experiment confirmed the assumption by a psychologist that children learn aggression from adults.

By | 2017-03-31T09:09:43+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Categories: Relationships|Tags: |

One group of children watched an adult model physical and verbal aggressive behavior. The second group watched a “peaceful” model. And a third group didn’t watch anybody. The study found that children in the “aggressive” group often imitated aggressiveness when they played with a doll, more so than the other groups.

The aggressive behavior of an adult had a greater impact on boys than girls.

A study has found how we may have difficulty judging our own abilities.

By | 2017-03-25T11:58:04+00:00 March 25th, 2017|Categories: Relationships|Tags: , |

The study used a set of mini-games to test a person’s skill. They played with a pair of other researches, with or against them. The researchers were not actually playing. The games they played had predetermined endings.

Some of the games the researchers won. Some of them the test players won.

When we’re competing with a strong player, we tend to downgrade our own ability. But when that player is on our team, we see ourselves as better than we really are.
