I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with a few friends I made through Instagram, and among the many topics we discussed, we explored the concept of envy in relation to watches and Instagram. It is a pretty gnarly topic which, understandably, doesn’t get discussed too often. I thought it would be interesting to explore. I’d like to thank @running_sands, @horology_ancienne and @watchguy315 for their opinions and thoughts on the matter.
In the last post I mentioned “self” and touched on psychological phenomena related to the self such as: everybody notices us, we are above average, and what we do make perfect sense.
Next we move on to attribution theory, which is a theory that explores how we make sense of ourselves and others, and then onto understanding how we think about other people, and what we actually like about other people.
