Does uncertainty make you unhappy?

September 10, 2020

According to an article in Time magazine, the answer is yes. It reports on a study that found ‘people are more stressed when there is a possibility they will experience discomfort’. Given the many uncertainties we face today, this finding matters. It suggests that all of us must be really unhappy.

But hold on! The study was based on people choosing from a group of rocks – and seeing whether the one they chose had a poisonous snake underneath. This scarcely represents an attractive opportunity, with the only upside being that you don’t get bitten. The uncertainty we face today is not like that. For those who have imagination, who are ready to adapt, there are always opportunities.

So how is uncertainty affecting you?
