Web Desk: A study revealed that money may improve your health and life standard but it can scarcely buy you happiness.
Research shows that people who earn more money tend to become proud and selfish but those who earn less may be rich in compassion and love.
It is because higher income makes people to focus on themselves while low income make people to take greater pleasure in their relationships and they are more likely to experience emotions that focus on other people.
Paul Piff, from the University of California, Irvine said, “These findings indicate that wealth is not unequivocally associated with happiness,”
“While wealthier individuals may find greater positivity in their accomplishments, status and individual achievements, less wealthy individuals seem to find more positivity and happiness in their relationships, their ability to care for and connect with others,” Piff added.
“Wealth doesn’t guarantee you happiness, but it may predispose you to experiencing different forms of it — for example, whether you delight in yourself versus in your friends and relationships,” Piff said.
The research was conducted on 1,519 people who were asked to answers a series of question.
