A new study published last month in Nature Journal suggests that Humans are naturally good.
This study adds to the mounting evidence against the popular misconception that corruption is a trait of human nature.
In ten experiments using economic games, scientists observed that faster decisions result in more cooperation and generosity, while slower, calculated decisions show a decrease in cooperation and generosity.
The conclusion is that the automatic reaction is to be friendly, generous and cooperative, and only upon further consideration do humans become greedy or violent.
