Description

If you've ever flown in economy class on a plane, you probably had to walk through the first class cabin to get to your seat. Maybe you noticed the extra leg room. The freshly-poured champagne. Maybe you were annoyed, or envious. Social psychologist Keith Payne says we tend to compare ourselves with those who have more than us, but rarely with those who have less. This week, we explore the psychology of income inequality, and how perceptions of our own wealth shape our lives.

I would highly recommend to do NO comparison at all and focus on what you want. I think it's horrible advice to exercise comparisons of any type. interesting story though thanks for making it.

Anna Kochetkova I would disagree. The well-founded benefits of gratitude are largely influenced by downward comparison and past-present comparison. Do what works for you though!
