How Do We Really Feel About The Rich And The Poor?
When I was about 12 years old, one of my friends told me a joke.
He asked, “What’s the difference between a bumblebee and a corvette?”
When I shrugged he said, “The prick is on the outside of the bumblebee.”
Jealousy might be the root of such tasteless jokes–and that makes sense.
At some point in our lives, we’ve all craved something we can’t afford. Perhaps we were jealous when we saw somebody else enjoying what we wanted.
But how do we really feel about the rich… and the poor? Psychology researchers Lasana Harris and Susan Fiske wanted to find out.
