People are kinder than you think.
With all the negativity out there, sometimes it’s tough to remember that most people are more good than bad – by a long shot. In fact, researchers at UCLA, along with a team of international scientists, found that people help each other every couple of minutes.
Specifically, they found that people ask for help in some way – something as simple as asking directions or asking someone to pass them something -- roughly once every couple of minutes. And the vast majority of people answer these calls for help. And on the rare occasions that people don’t help – they provide a reason why.
