available to them and their status might suggest theyve made smart decisions about money But a recent study finds that people who aren’t rich may actually make wiser decisions when it comes to their relationships with friends family and co-workers The research published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B examined the link between class and reasoning in two experiments: an online survey of 2145 people from across the United States and in-person interviews with almost 300 residents of one county in Michigan Both groups included people from varying economic backgrounds from the nonworking poor to the middle- or upper-class People in the study were asked to recall recent experiences from their lives or to consider hypothetical situations that involved friends or coworkers They also answered questions designed to determine how much they engaged in each of the five aspects of what the researchers called "wise reasoning style" People with wise reasoning style recognize the limits of their own knowledge (known as intellectual humility); recognize that the world is in flux and that situations can unfold in multiple ways; look at things from an outsiders viewpoint; recognize the other sides perspective in an argument; and search for ways to compromise and resolve conflicts The researches found that people in a higher social class "consistently related to lower levels of wise reasoning" the authors wrote in their paper The results were consistent across different regions of the United States and occurred regardless of peoples IQ age gender and personality differences in agreeableness openness to new experiences and consideration of others emotions TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now The findings suggest that higher social class "weighs individuals down" by undermining their ability to reason wisely the study authors wrote in their paper "The rich may have the affordances that provide the foundation for higher education and potential for wealth" lead author Igor Grossman associate professor of psychology at the University of Waterloo told TIME by email "but they may have less of the affordances that teach themor force themto reason wisely about interpersonal conflicts" Other research has suggested that wealthier people are more narcissistic and get more happiness out of their own accomplishments than from their relationships with others The same type of independent mindset "may enable them to more likely shrug off their interpersonal conflicts and reason less wisely" says Grossman A person’s ability to relate well to others also seems to depend on the status of people nearby A rich person in a low-status positioncompared to his or her boss for examplemay be just as wise as a lower-class person Grossman says "There is research on how experimental manipulations of power and status change your perception of reality" he says "including feeling of entitlement" MORE: TIME’s Guide To Happiness The new research only found class differences in reasoning around interpersonal conflicts and Grossman stresses that the findings dont necessarily translate to decision-making around finances careers or other areas of life Hes also not suggesting that being "wise" has much to do with why a person is rich or poor "In our view this has more to do with the social structure and lack of social mobility in the United States rather than their ability to reason about interpersonal affairs" he says What the study does suggest he adds is that people who want to be wiser should strive for a more interdependent mindset "Take a third-person perspective and the perspective of the other person in the situation" he says "Understand that situations and perspectives can change in time and the importance of collaborating and cooperating to maintain long-term relationships" Contact us at [email protected] appended Former Florida Gov Jeb Bushs statement Thursday that he would not rule out resuming the use of enhanced interrogation techniques was as interesting for what he said as what he didnt The Republican presidential candidate told a group of Iowa Republicans that he wasn’t sure whether he’d repeal an executive order banning certain interrogation techniques signed by President Obama "I dont want to make a definitive blanket kind of statement this is something Im not struggling with" Bush said "Im running for president Im not running for the Senate or running for governor When youre president your words matter and Im cautious about making commitments without having all the facts because this is a serious one" Bush’s position is not all that out of step with his Republican rivals Many in the 2016 field have a similar view: They aren’t enthusiastic about torture and probably wouldn’t use techniques like waterboarding on people suspected of terrorism but they don’t want to say exactly what they would and wouldn’t do The position boils down to three words: Just trust us Take South Carolina Sen Lindsey Graham In June he bucked his political twin Sen John McCain of Arizona and voted against a measure that would categorically ban torture The hawkish Graham said he opposed torture of course but was against publicly telling Americas enemies what they would face if caught It was a rare split with McCain who was tortured as a Vietnam POW and has been among the most ardent opponents of any form of abuse toward prisoners Or consider Florida Sen Marco Rubio The Florida Republican missed that vote on torture but later said he would have cast his ballot against it “I do not support telegraphing to the enemy what interrogation techniques we will or won’t use and denying future commanders in chief and intelligence officials important tools for protecting the American people and the US homeland" he said in a statement at the time And during last weeks debate retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson won applause for this answer to a question about waterboarding: "You know what we do in order to get the information that we need is our business and I wouldnt necessarily be broadcasting what were going to do" To be sure there are those who remain steadfast in their opposition to torture which began as President George W Bush was prosecuting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and hunting al-Qaeda leaders who plotted the Sept 11 2001 terrorist attacks Sens Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas both voted for the torture ban earlier this summer “Torture is wrong unambiguously” Cruz said at the time Republican voters are much less critical of the tactics A national poll by the Pew Research Center from December showed that more than three-fourths of Republicans say the CIA’s post-9/11 interrogation techniques were justified compared to only 37 percent of Democrats and roughly half of independents In 2012 foreign policy advisers to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney recommended that he overturn Obama’s executive order and resume the interrogation program in a private memo while Romney said he did not believe that waterboarding in which suspects are made to feel as though they are drowning was a form of torture The 2016 field is more publicly ambivalent about endorsing torture techniques but it’s not clear yet what that would mean if they move into the Oval Office in 2017 Correction: This article originally cited a report that misquoted Bushs remarks about struggling with torture He said it was not an issue he was struggling with Write to Philip Elliott
