You turn to people, it’s an adaptive strategy. You develop this sort of heightened independence with other individuals as a way to deal with not having enough individual resources.”
—Michael Kraus explains the findings of his recent study, which shows that rich people don’t understand how you’re feeling, because they don’t have to. They’re rich!
