The road from good intentions

A new study finds that our perception of others' intentions plays a big role in how much we suffer from their actions:

"The general message is that being suspicious leads to a very unhappy life. Trusting in people's good intentions makes for a happier one. This doesn't mean that you should give away the house. But constantly seeing hidden agendas will take its toll. You'll be much better off giving people the benefit of the doubt."
