People enjoy spending time with friends more than family because they like to have fun with their friends. A recent study has revealed this.
The 400 people who took part in the study were asked how much they enjoyed a certain moment with their family and friends. From this Q&A it can be seen that the lowest score among the three groups was made by the romantic partner, the second place was friends and the first place was children.
However, the researchers said that the difference in enjoyment between the three groups was not due to the people but to what activities they were all doing together. When people meet up with friends, their agenda is to have fun.
At the same time, housework and other activities with children and companions are also included. According to research, when people are with friends, they spend more time gossiping, relaying and eating. At this point he is not worried about any other work.
Nathan Hudson, a researcher at Southern Methodist University, found that .5 percent of experiences with friends are just gossip and fun. At the same time, only 28 percent of the time available for this work with partners is available. “Our research shows that people feel better with friends than with family,” he said. He says people should also have fun activities with their families as it will strengthen their relationship.
Professor Hudson says opportunities should also be explored to create a positive experience with romantic partners and children. It makes the brain feel better from those happy memories. The study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
