The Joy of Generosity (oxytocin)

Paul Zak of Claremont Graduate University, the foremost researcher on oxytocin's effects on humans, has an interesting post on his Psychology Today blog, recounting an experiment that shows how one experience that releases oxytocin influences behaviors in other situations -- for the better. (Paul, are you going to do any experiments to see if you can increase gloating?)

He writes,

Oxytocin connects us to others and social connections are a powerful way to increase one's own happiness. If you want to connect to others, being generous is a great start.
