We have to be more intentional about the people we choose to associate with: If you want to lose weight, hang out with people who make good diet and exercise choices. If you want a better marriage, socialize with people who have healthy ones. If you want to make more money, associate with people who are successful.

To that end, an intense interest in the private dealings of others was beneficial and favored by natural selection.
