Facebook Jealousy Hits Smart People the Hardest
by JC Burton,posted Jul 9 2013 4:30PM
A new study claims that intelligent people are more likely to experience jealousy while using Facebook. Researchers asked college students to imagine a scenario in which they discovered a message in their partner’s Facebook inbox from a person of the opposite sex saying, "What are you up to later?" Interestingly, those with higher GPAs reported the most intense feelings of jealousy. Researchers suggest that students with higher GPAs are more conscientious, show greater self-control and tend to be perfectionists, and that "the perceived infidelity likely upsets their attempts at perfection across the board."
