Yes, us Zulu rain warriors are a little known off-shoot tribe of the Outback Aboriginals - still wandering around and kneeling before the Kata Tjuta.

The Benefit Of Making People Feel Bad

 

It’s generally frowned upon to purposefully make someone feel bad, but new research suggests there may be some benefits to it.

 

In a study, published in the journal Psychological Science, researchers found that people may be looking to improve another person’s long-term well-being by inducing negative emotion in the present moment.

 

“We have shown that people can be 'cruel to be kind’--that is, they may decide to make someone feel worse if this emotion is beneficial for that other person, even if this does not entail any personal benefit for them,” study author Belén López-Pérez said in a statement. “These results expand our knowledge of the motivations underlying emotion regulation between people.”

 

Past research has showed people who emotionally manipulate others do it for their own personal benefit. But in a new study, researchers were interested in examining altruistic behavior. They imagined it happening in everyday scenarios. “For instance, inducing fear of failure in a loved one who is procrastinating instead of studying for an exam,” López-Pérez said.

 

The researchers hypothesized that the altruistic effect would happen when three conditions were met: the person making the other one feel bad has empathic concern for them; the negative emotion aids to help the target achieve their goal; and there’s no benefit for the person inducing the emotion.

 

To test this hypothesis, 140 adults played a computer-based video game with an anonymous partner called Player A. All of the participants received an automated note generated by Player A about their recent breakup and feelings of helplessness. Some of the study subjects were asked to empathize with Player A, while others were told to stay detached.

 

They were then assigned to play one of two games. The first game, Soldier of Fortune, involved killing as many enemies as possible. The second game, Escape Dead Island, involved trying to escape from zombies. After playing the game, they listened to music and read game descriptions. They then rated, on a 1-7 scale, if they wanted their partner to listen to the clips or read the descriptions, which evoked various emotions. Additionally, they rated how they wanted their partner to feel and if it would be useful in achieving the game’s goal.

 

The findings revealed that study participants chose to induce specific emotions in their partner depending on which of the two games they played. For example, during the zombie game, players chose fearful music for their partner to listen to, in order to help them win the game.

 

“These findings shed light on social dynamics, helping us to understand, for instance, why we sometimes may try to make our loved ones feel bad if we perceive this emotion to be useful to achieve a goal,” López-Pérez said.

Clearly that is the disadvantage of being supported by a professional and capable team at each event.  Many of us would never get past the brake failure and the crash in one weekend and would be temporarily spared the further pain of the other 2 failures. 

 

Tom - yup - I was very fortunate to have a great bunch of guys around that weekend. Now normally I race under the OPM tent, and there is typically an entire team ready to pounce on the car if we have an issue, but this weekend, while Fowler was basking in the Bahamian sun, I was running with Mike Rossini.

 

And as each one of these crises happened, it was pretty awesome to see Rossini's fellow SM drivers getting involved to get me out for the next race. Special thanks to Adam Molaver, Adam Culley, Jason Connole, Dan and Preston Pardus, Cameron Connover, and of course Mike and Elaine Rossini and their new crew guy John.

 

Without their help I would have packed up and headed home after the second session on test day. Spec Miata drivers are a pretty good bunch, and we all want to race against each other. None of us wants to see a car sidelined to mechanical. We want to beat the entire field, not just those running at the end.
