10/25 (Tue.) The culture of comparison.(Host: Miller)

文章 miller »

Did you ever hear from your parents that you need to compare yourself with someone else in many ways, like the score on exams, behavior, or height?
This comparison culture already existed in human society since humans live on the earth.
And one research revealed that this phenomenon exists in monkey society as well.
There are pros and cons, it forced people to improve themself on one side and people took a toll on their happiness on another side.
The followings are two examples to show how the comparison culture works in our life.
Ex1. You can only observe toddlers playing happily with red LEGO until they see a peer playing with yellow.
Ex2. It’s how your income compares to your friends rather than how much you earn that affects your overall life satisfaction. The higher your income rank, the happier you feel.
If you are interested in this topic, come to join us.
