With all the bad news we hear every day, it's no wonder we get grumpy! Thank goodness being grumpy is good, and it's even good for your health! A psychologist has discovered that being grumpy makes people think more clearly.
Grumpy people are much better at making decisions than happy people, who are far more gullible. BBC News quotes psychologist Joe Forgas as saying, "Whereas positive mood seems to promote creativity, flexibility, co-operation and reliance on mental shortcuts, negative moods trigger more attentive, careful thinking, paying greater attention to the external world. A mildly negative mood may actually promote a more concrete, accommodative and ultimately more successful communication style."
Grumpiness isn't the only thing that helps us to use our brains in the best way: UFO contact does the same thing! Anne Strieber explains what this is all about just for subscribers!
