Monkey See, Monkey Do.

Capuchin monkeys have a bias against assholes. Given the choice to accept treats from either humans who were observed by the monkeys to accept to help or not help another human, they tended to go for the treats offered by the kinder, helpful human. “Explicit refusal to help is a signal that you’re dangerous, that you’re negative,” says Kiley Hamlin, a developmental psychologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

See, monkeys have their shit figured out. Now I'm pulling this next stat out of my ass, but I'm pretty sure that 98% of us humans have either dated, befriended, or done a favour for an asshole, knowing that they were an asshole.

Maybe we should follow their example, and stay away from jerks. Or at least unhelpful people.

Also, monkeys are nicer than most people.

Science, friends!
