Want To Be More Empathic? Skip Lunch.

A new study suggests that people who are hungry are more supportive of social welfare. 

 

Behind every great design is an important human trait: empathy. But how do you train someone to be empathetic? How can you coax out the fundamental viewpoint of caring for your fellow man, especially if you’re having a lousy day yourself?

 

A new study published in Psychological Science, by Assistant Professor Lene Aarøe from Aaehus University, something interesting: hunger may drive empathy. (And at minimum, it makes us more supportive of social welfare programs.)
