Money Discussions and Thoughts Make People Isolate: Obstacle to Getting Help?

with one comment

“Reminders of money elicit a self-sufficient state that is characterized by two motives:

  • On the one hand, people reminded of money eagerly pursue personal goals and freedom. They persist longer than others on difficult tasks and hesitate to ask for help
  • On the other hand, people reminded of money act as if they are immune to others. They desire solo (as opposed to dyadic or group) activities and feel indifferent to social exclusion.

  1. Money is an object, which engages the left side of the brain. Human relationships and empathy are mediated by the right side. Using both sides rather than one-sided thinking–that’s the challenge.
