How Embarrassing

The next time you stick your foot in your mouth or have toilet paper stuck to your shoe – savor the moment!!  According to a recent study feeling publicly humiliated is actually good for us.  In one experiment, adults were asked to imagine themselves in an embarrassing situation, such as being naked in a bedroom and discovering the shades are open, then rate how they would feel. Those who felt humiliated were more likely to be happy, pro-social, and generous types.  In another experiment, adults were shown videos of people in embarrassing situations.  Victims of humiliation that let it show

were rated as much more trustworthy and likeable than those who appeared unashamed.
