If you have ever believed that the wealthier people are, the more ignorant they become of other people’s pain, then science is going to back you up. Of course, not every one is a Warren Buffet or a Bill Gates who actually feel the pain of the poor and believe in helping the world. A recent study that was published in the Psychological Science journal at New York University shows that wealthy people pay very less attention to people who are poor in comparison to them. Like we don’t know it already!
The researchers did a lot of experiments and all the results proved their theory. One of the pivotal reasons that explained the reasoning behind this behaviour is that rich people afford to have others work for them and fulfil their needs and this strong financial stability makes them invest in interpersonal relationships lesser than their less wealthy counterparts. Having strong interpersonal relationships is the ideal key to human happiness, as explained in a Harvard study. Wealthy people end up in major bouts of loneliness but it doesn’t seem to bother them at this stage. Well, money cannot buy happiness but it easy to cry in a BMW, rather than crying on a bicycle, or that’s what the rich seem to believe.
