Why Happiness Will Never Be What You Expect

Summary

When it comes to happiness, research has found that many people fall prey to what is known as the impact bias: the tendency for people to overestimate the initial impact of an emotional event. This means that many people believe that certain future events, like buying a new car or house, getting married, etc. will make them more happy than is really the case. In this article, we will explore chasing happiness and how the intensity and duration of these events are far less than expected.
