We're men and we like to be strong, right? So we go to the gym and left heavy objects and eat good food to feed the muscles. But wait, it appears we can also get strong by doing good. That's right, doing good deeds, according to Professor Kurt Gray, makes us stronger. How cool is that? Now go be nice to someone and build some strength.
Professor Gray shares how his research at The Maryland Mind Perception and Morality Lab showed him that doing good deeds has the power to make us physically stronger. Gray explains that instead of thinking we must be strong before we can do good, performing acts of goodness actually strengthens us.
