- Feelings of inferiority and desire can spur us to bring down our competitors—or to better ourselves.
- Our ability to successfully control envy impulses is hampered by outside factors such as stress, exhaustion and inebriation.
- Transforming malicious envy into its more productive cousin, benign envy, may be a way to harness the emotion’s power to motivate.
- Pride is a pleasurable emotion that arises when people feel good about themselves; it can bring out both the best and worst in human nature.
- It appears to manifest as one of two types: hubristic pride and authentic pride.
- Both types appear to facilitate the attainment of power and high status. Hubristic pride can harm mental health and damage friendships, however, whereas authentic pride can motivate achievement and concern for others.
- Eating for pleasure, rather than out of hunger, can prime our brain to want that hedonistic experience more and more.
- Humans who tend to overeat may develop the same patterns of neural activity in reward areas as drug addicts do; data suggest that eating high-sugar or high-fat diets can lead to cycles of craving and withdrawal.
- Although the concept of food addiction is controversial, lessons from recent research can put us on a fitter path. Regulating the amount of food choice we give ourselves, for example, and avoiding situations where we are conditioned to eat can help us consume less and feel better.
- Brain imaging is revealing the distinct but interlocking patterns of neural activation associated with lust and love.
- Lust is most likely grounded in the concrete sensations of the given moment. Love is a more abstract gloss on our experiences with another person.
