184.Why are we happy

 

Interesting Talk by Dan Gilbert [ Harvard psychologist ] via my dearie TED. Been trying to paste the video here but seems like am lack on internet-savvy skill.To view the talk kindly click on the link provided ok =)

Quoted “Psychologist Dan Gilbert challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our “psychological immune system” lets us feel real, enduring happiness, he says, even when things don’t go as planned. He calls this kind of happiness “synthetic happiness,” and he says it’s “every bit as real and enduring as the kind of happiness you stumble upon when you get exactly what you were aiming for.”

Owh I managed to find his blog and I like the article he wrote on July 2,2006.
