Why Do People Cheat?

Over the years I’ve written about the prevalence of cheating in all its various forms, whether in business, personally or at school.

The generally accepted belief is that people cheat even though it makes them feel bad.

New research, however, shows the opposite.

… the researchers found that those who cheated experienced thrill, self-satisfaction, a sense of superiority.

While it’s not surprising that people repeat actions that make them feel good, these results aren’t very encouraging when it comes to the impact on our society.
