Loneliness affects one’s reasoning- Study

June 06, 2016


The level of wisdom varies with the situations, the individuals face. Being alone or with friends even can affect a person’s reasoning capability, a study says.

“There are many examples where people known for their critical acumen or expertise in ethics seem to fall prey to lack of such acumen or morals. The present findings suggest that those examples are not an anomaly,” lead author of the study Igor Grossmann, Professor at the University of Waterloo in Canada. 

“We cannot always be at the top of our game in terms of wisdom-related tendencies, and it can be dangerous to generalise based on whether people show wisdom in their personal life or when teaching others in the classroom,” Grossmann said.
