The Benefits Of Gossip

Gossip doesn’t only teach us about the person who’s the subject of the conversation, but also about the gossiper. When you gossip you tell others things about your attitudes, beliefs, and ways of dealing with people by seeing who and what you gossip about.

When you do join in, gossipcan also strengthen your social bonds. It improves a group's cooperation and makes members less selfish, as well as a way ofidentifying and ostracizing untrustworthy individualsuntil they learn the lesson.
