3 Kinds of Envy

1. Depressive envy

When someone you know does better than you, it often feels like you are a loser, a failure, or inferior. You think that their success reflects your failure.

2. Hostile envy

Because the other person’s success has resulted in your feeling that you can’t stand it, you may want them to fail.

3. Benign envy

Benign envy leads us to pay attention to what the other person is doing because we often think we can learn something.

Ashley Anthony

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Giovanna Scalzone
