Gratitude enhances honesty

In a study published in Psychological Science, participants were presented with temptation. Those who recalled a time when they felt grateful were more likely to act in an honest manner than those who described a time when they felt happy or neutral.

People who feel grateful are more likely to help others, divide their profits and be loyal even at a cost to themselves.
