New Study Provides Insight Into a Psychological Phenomenon Known As Social Hedonic Editing

“When people are told to imagine that an event is going to happen to them and to a friend (e.g., winning $100), people prefer that they and their friend experience these events at the same time rather than on different days. The findings, published in Social Psychological and Personality Science, suggest that this effect stems from a desire for interpersonal connection.”
