Web Desk: A study reveals that people who enjoy hurting others are more likely to take revenge than those who have wronged.
Researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University found that sad people have dominant personality and they are more likely to take revenge.
“We wanted to paint a picture of the personality of the type of person who seeks revenge. Were all slighted in our daily lives, but some of us seek revenge and some of us do not,” said David Chester, assistant professor at VCU
“The core of what we found is that the person who seeks revenge is a person who tends to enjoy it,” Chester said.
Respondents were asked whether they agree or disagree to a variety of statements, like “Anyone who provokes me deserves the punishment that I give” and “If I am wronged, I can’t live with myself until I revenge.”
“Identifying who is most at risk for seeking revenge is really important to do in order to intervene before they engage in harmful acts and start to hurt other people in retaliation,” Chester said.
