On his blog this morning Internet Psychologist Graham Jones poses the question "which kind of people do you like the most? Those who divide and rule, or those who are less selfish and try to help others?".
He asks this in his article, Helping others online could boost your business, which is well worth a read. He writes about recent research from the University of California at Berkeley which suggests that the helpful, altruistic individuals around us are the ones that are doing best in our modern society. The article referred to by Graham is entitled Social scientists build case for 'survival of the kindest'. The article includes this
"In a wide range of studies, social scientists are amassing a growing body of evidence to show we are evolving to become more compassionate and collaborative in our quest to survive and thrive."
Good to see some solid academic research into the whole ethos of how networking works. As we know the more you help others the greater your chances of success.
