  • Negativity bias means that, as human beings, we experience “bad” events more intensely than we do the “good” - and we also remember them more. So we have to work hard to remain hopeful - or we can’t make things better.

Understanding how other cultures approach life’s trials and joys may help us achieve contentment.
