A Sexual ‘High’ From Hurting Others

I wrote about this topic in my new book, Neighbors At War: The Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association. Some readers were a little skeptical, but the latest study by scientists at MIT and Princeton University seems to back my claim up.

People actually take pleasure in hurting others. Obviously not everybody lacks empathy. But a solid majority of those studied shows that many folks get some kind of a ‘buzz’ when they hurt someone else, especially those they envy.

It’s not the first such study. Others have shown that a vast majority of people would actually hurt other people, even fatally, if put in a position of power.

But this latest study adds interesting information when you look at HOA board members who abuse their positions of power over others.
