Small Talk With Strangers Sparks Happiness, Study Finds

Small Talk With Strangers Sparks Happiness, Study Finds | Kickin' Kickers | Scoop.it
From Yahoo: Nicholas Epley, a professor of behavioral science at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business and co-author of the study "Mistakenly Seeking Solitude?" examined whether connecting with a stranger can improve one's overall well-being. Through several experiments, Epley and study co-author Juliana Schroeder instructed commuters to either connect with a nearby stranger, remain disconnected or commute as normal. Those who reported a more positive experience in solitude were found to have underestimated a stranger's interest in connecting, "which in turn keeps people from learning the actual consequence of social interaction," Epley and Schroeder noted.
