Why Spending Money on Others Promotes Your Happiness

Research suggests that many people think that spending money on themselves will make them happier than spending it on other people (Dunn et al., 2008). But there is evidence from various different studies that, on average, this isn’t true: Participants who were given $5 or $20 to spend on another person were happier than those who spent it on themselves (Dunn et al., 2008). People who spend greater proportions of their income on giving to others or to charity are happier than those who spend it on themselves (Dunn et al., 2008). Canadian and Ugandan students who thought back to times they’d been generous to others were happier than those thinking back to money they’d spent on themselves (Aknin et al., 2010). And we haven’t even taken into account how happy it makes the recipient.

Then why do we start school so early?!

Did you know: When people don’t have an adequate citation, they say “A study finds…”
Here you go, by the way. And all it found is that morning people tend to be more logical, while night people tend to be more abstract. Logical people have plenty of capacity for creativity. Creativity is dynamic and organic.
