The Reasons for Being Shopaholic
Posted 06 April 2012 - 11:56 AM
If you have extra 50 bucks, would you go out with your friends or rather buy yourself another pair of jeans? You answer will predetermine your happiness, likability and your general view on life.
The last study has disproved the old saying “money cannot buy happiness” as it was found that money-oriented shoppers are less happy and even less liked than those less materialistic ones.
In general people think that being able to buy materialistic goods can to improve their lives. But the recent psychological research found that so-called “experience shoppers”- people that spend money on traveling, food and visiting cultural events tend to better get along with others- feel themselves less anxious in difficult social situations and are overall happier comparing to people who are obsessed with shopping.

i think that's kind of silly categorising people into happy and not happy based on amount of money they spend on clothing and stuff. Happiness is an abstract thing and for some people sociolising is not what makes them happy. I'm not a shopaholic but i do lobe doing shopping and that makes me really happy, the process itself and the result, too. We are different. And each person is happy in his own way.
