ARE YOU NAUGHTY OR NICE? – The science says you’re not the best judge of that:
If you give money to a homeless man or woman, does that make you a nice person? How often do you offer to help someone struggling with heavy bags? Do you frequently give blood?
You may consider yourself to be a nice person, but according to a new study you’re probably not as nice as you think.
Psychologists from Goldsmiths, University of London have discovered that 98 per cent of British people think they’re part of the nicest 50 per cent of the population.
This is what happens when once a Christian society becomes thoroughly secularised. In the past we all thought of ourselves as sinners, bearing the stigma of the original sin; now we’re all nice and good and decent. I’m with the other 2 per cent. Come and join me, there is plenty of room in my 50 per cent.
