Does Money Make You Mean?


I am not sure when I last watched a twenty minute video (especially that of a lecture) from beginning to end without switching away, but it did happen this time (see it for yourself below). I am fascinated by the experiments through which social psychologist Paul Piff and his team have studied inequality and figured out that when people are clearly given a leg up in life, they usually assume it’s because they’re better people rather than because they got a head start. What this comes down to in the end is that more wealth will actually make you meaner. The good news is that this is somewhat tweakable.
