Experimental Evidence of Synthesized Happiness

Experimental paradigms, such as the free choice paradigm, demonstrate how synthesized happiness operates.

Participants rank objects, make choices, and subsequently adjust their preferences to align with their decisions.

Even amnesiac patients, who cannot remember their previous choices, exhibit similar patterns of synthesized happiness, suggesting that this cognitive process is deeply ingrained.

Such findings challenge the notion that happiness derived from choices is superficial or insincere.

Instead, they highlight the brain's remarkable ability to adjust and create contentment.
