Just thought I share something I heard while listening to none other than a Joe Rogan podcast.
The part I’m referring to begins around the 1 hour and 50 minute mark where Bret Weinstein explains that humans are biologically wired to attempt to emulate others that appear to be more successful at living. This trait for our ancestors was a survival instinct that has been passed down through the millennium and now is known as the keeping up with the Joneses syndrome we all know and love.
The entire episode is extremely fascinating and I highly recommend it!!!
