Nobel Laureate economist, John Harsanyi, said that "apart from economic payoffs, social status seems to be the most important incentive and motivating force of social behavior."
The more noticeable status disparities are, the more concerned with status people become.
When you get up in the morning, you do not think about triangles and squares and these similes that psychologists have been using for the past 100 years. You think about status. You think about where you are in relation to your peers.
People who are effective in attaining status do so through behaving generously and helpfully towards their group.
People afford greater status to individuals who donate their own money and those who sacrifice their individual interests for the public good. Demonstrating your value to a group — whether through competence or selflessness — appears to improve status.
This is amplified by the degree to which you have social connections with others. The more connected you are, the more positive reputation you gain when you demonstrate your value.
Low-status people are much more sensitive to being socially rejected and are more inclined to monitor their environment for threats.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
