Dan Gilbert, author of “Stumbling on Happiness,” challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our “psychological immune system” lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned.
Gilbert explains how our brain evolved to make front situations and simulates experiences. He teaches us by real examples about people that have synthetize happiness despite the problems. He thinks the toughest the situation, the better we will adapt to it.
