The site of Melbourne university published an opinion of social psychologist Dr. Simon Laham that the seven deadly sins, including Lust, are good for you!

 

Dr Laham reveals:

 

Lust can make you smarter. Research shows that people with sex on the brain are better at solving ‘analytic thinking’ problems. Lust triggers us to become focused on the present and the details of satisfying a rather pressing current goal, namely sex.

 

Lust makes you helpful. Lust is so well designed to fulfill its function of getting people into bed, that it leads us to behave in ways that potential partners will find more attractive.

 

Lust builds love. Research shows that lustful participants are more likely to display a range of loving, relationship maintenance strategies – like adopting constructive conflict resolution strategies – to increase the chances of sex in the future.

 

Gluttony - People who have eaten a piece of cake are more likely to donate to charity.

 

Greed – Money can buy you happiness as long as you spend it the right way. Studies show that people are happier when they spend their money on experiences rather than material possessions.

 

Sloth - The ultimate slothful state, sleep and even napping, improves your memory and makes you more insightful.  Research has also shown that slowing down makes you more helpful.  Studies in cities in which people walk more slowly, such as Bakersfield in California, pedestrians are more likely to stop and offer help.

 

Anger - Anger triggers an oppositional mindset which makes people more willing to entertain beliefs contrary to their own. In addition, angry negotiators, tend to be more likely to get what they want in a negotiation.

 

Envy - Comparing yourself to those better off than you can lead to boosts in mood, self-image and creativity. 

 

School students who compared themselves to superior students got better grades.

 

Pride – Proud people persist longer at difficult tasks and adopt leadership roles. Studies show that the proud are more liked.

 

Dr Laham said that when you take a look at the evidence, the seven deadly sins can really serve us quite well despite being told for centuries they are bad for us.

 

 

 

“This is great news for Australians as a recent BBC poll deemed Australia the most sinful country on earth,” he said.

Dear MACHEVILLI, I agree that the United States beats Australia. But who knows, maybe Australians are conscious sinners, and Americans suffer innocently? :-)))))

Australians are the most sinful people on earth? LMAO Once upon a time maybe, when Australia was still a penal colony. The whole thing is full of fun and utter silliness, I fear. No doubt next week's studies will come to entirely different conclusions. Slow walkers may be more helpful, but a recent showed that fast walkers are less like to have heart attacks. Now, if slow walkers are more helpful, which would emply that they are more heartfelt, more emotionally generous, then doesn't it look as though those who are kind are more likely to die of heart attacks earlier? Allo wacko nonsense, I fear. This week's study is next weeks trash for dumpster. Stop reading studies and just go out and enjoy being alive. If red meat makes you happy--eat it. If you can't live without an egg a day because your palate demands that egg--eat it. The one constant precursor of long life is being happy. And even if that isn't true, who wants a long life of misery as opposed to a short life of happiness? Not me.

laughing cloud, I want to thank you for sharing the information. However, I would like to share a few thoughts about the topic. I am not doubting the BBC poll. As a former veteran I feel duty bound to speak up for United States regarding the topic. Having said that I would like to share a few facts that MUST put the United States in the running for the title: United States has the highest incarceration in the world. " " " has the highest car theft rate. " " " sells more fast food than any other country. No one watches more television than we done. (Some say we invented reality for our entertainment) We lead the world in credit card fraud. We have the highest divorce rate. The highest number of school shootings. The United States produces more pornography than any other country. We take more prescription drugs. The highest rate of illegal drug use than any other country. We have more debt, credit card, mortgage, and student loans than any other country. No one has more plastic surgery then we do. More laws than any other country. (Could explain why we lock up so many) The most foreign military bases. (We are always able to get into other nations business) Of course, we export more arms than any other nation. Finally, We waste the most money than any other nation. The United States of America has accumlated the largest mountain of government debt in the history of the world. I will rest my case. Anyone who doesn't believe that the United States of America is in deep, deep trouble is living in a fantasy world, it's past time to wake up. As someone who has served honorably to defend and protect I am very saddened by the direction the country is going.
