Schadenfreude and gluckschmerz are emotional signals of (im)balance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Smith and van Dijk (XXXX) explore the relationship between the emotions schadenfreude and gluckschmerz, and why people experience these emotions. Their perspective is valuable and adds to a better understanding of how people respond to the fortunes of others. In this manuscript I try to further these ideas by arguing that schadenfreude and gluckschmerz are best seen as signals that indicate that a balance in how we would want the world to be is restored (for schadenfreude) or violated (for gluckschmerz).
