Social Comparisons

A social comparison happens when we are measuring ourselves by the success or the failures of others. We all use social comparisons to motivate ourselves.

  • Upward comparisons make us dissatisfied, as we line up ourselves with someone better than us.
  • Downward comparisons make us feel better about our status, and sometimes feel pity for the other.
