Who’s your competition?

A study asked if people would rather be gifted a $400k house on a street with all $100k houses, or a million dollar house on a street with all $4m houses.  Most chose the $400k house – the smaller house, but the biggest on its street.

Who are you competing with?  Does your fulfillment come from comparison (better than the competition) or progress (better than yesterday’s version of me)?

I’m no authority on what’s “right”, but I bet we both know which one is the healthier mindset.

  1. Yikes! This is surprising, even to a skeptic (cycnic?) like like me. Can you show share your source for this? I’m curious, and would like to learn more.
