The Science of Sin summary Ý 8 Win the race ·         Anger makes you open minded ·         Coveting what others have not only makes you creative but bolsters self esteem   So go ahead eat that last cookie and kick back on the couch for a day of TV with your neighbor’s boyfriend from gluttony to greed envy to lust Laham shows how even the deadliest most decadent of vices can make you smart successful and happ. This is a fun lighthearted look at why behaviors we are supposed to think of as sinful may in fact be good and productive Each chapter explores one of the seven deadly sins and its many facets through discussing the often surprising results of numerous psychological experiments and studies There are both productive and unproductive sides to each sin For example we can either use envy to motivate ourselves in a positive way envying a role model to improve ourselves or achieve a goal or in a negativerelative way envying another s car or diamond ring which does not bring happiness when achieved Using anger cautiously in negotiations can be a powerful way to get what you want except in Asia where it will backfire to see yourself with control over your future or even to open your mind to new ideas Who knewAnother entertaining aspect of this book is the descriptions of the creative and strange experiments the scientists devised to test their theories Those poor test subjects were often completely misled as to the object of their participation I confess I found this rather funnyAs the author concludes there is simply no black and white in human behavior and society The sins can work for or against you and the world depending on how you use them I certainly enjoy an irreverent book now and then that uestions traditionally held beliefs whether or not I end up agreeing I think it s perfectly healthy to spend an occasional weekend in sloth being completely lazy or to use greed or envy to get you off that sofa to work hard on your life s goals
