The Psychology Of Revenge

The Psychology Of Revenge

Revenge is the desire to retaliate to someone who has injured us or made us suffer, either physically or mentally.

Studies revealed that the feeling of revenge is extremely rewarding to the brain. The region of the brain called ‘caudate nucleus’ is stimulated when the victim imagines taking revenge to punish the other person.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Attaining the heights of success by continued discipline and hustle is the best form of revenge, as it makes the original wrongdoer irrelevant and puny in front of one’s enormous stature.

While movies portray that being able to successfully take revenge will make one feel better, and find some closure, the long term effects of avenging oneself are completely opposite.
