Other than guilt. Contrary to what one might imagine, according to an American – signed by scholars from the University of Washington, Pennsylvania, Harvard University and the London Business School and published in the Journal of Personality and Social psychology the tendency to deception would give satisfaction, and thus, would make us feel good. A discovery that certainly surprising and somewhat perplexing, but that would explain why sometimes it feels pleasure in repeating certain actions unbecoming.

In detail, the American research explains that the sense of satisfaction that is found in living in deception is related to the belief of not doing evil and harm at least apparently to anyone. In addition, it would be the instinct to make fraudulent, because the so-called cunning would upon a sense of superiority that would lead you to really feel better than the other, as well as smarter. No guilt, then, tagliatelle who acts with less than noble purposes, but it would by its very nature to make leaning towards deception.


The New York Times, however, showed no little astonishment than searching. The concerns of daily life are mainly due to two reasons: First, never no previous study has revealed that behave in a deceptive manner makes you feel good, and second, thinking to take action against all forms ethics is not part of the American canon, especially that relating to the public conduct. Not that elsewhere it is within the right thing to do, but probably in Italy to give just one example there would be no fuss and the outcome of this study would only formalize a malpractice already well established.

According to scholars a brake for scoundrels might be constituted by real awareness of the costs arising from their illegal actions and damage. For example, who is guilty of the crime of piracy may not know that according to data provided by the always New York Times sixty-three are the billions of dollars that would be so removed from the companies software. Another way to re-size certain behaviors unbecoming may be removed charm and value to the scam itself.
