Is complaining a way to deep inner-happiness? Well according to a new book called, Money and Happiness (The Scientific Way), making consumer complaints is good for you. The author, Dr. L V George (PhD), claims that complaining is a great chance to learn how to put forward a strong argument, practice your negotiation skills and learn how to manoeuvre yourself around complex bureaucratic company policies.
The rationale behind this is that moments of genuine customer dissatisfaction present opportunities to learn how to assert yourself and also develop better interpersonal/negotiation skills that will come in handy when you need to ask for a higher salary, buy a car or negotiate a new mortgage rate.
The basis for linking money and happiness is the groundbreaking study conducted by Nobel Prize winning academics at Princeton University in relation to whether money can in fact equal happiness. The research concludes with the figure of $75k/year as the optimal amount for achieving a certain level of surface happiness because it gives you sufficient material wealth and financial stability. As a result, the book not only outlines a series of scientifically proven ways to become a happier person but, uniquely, it also shows you unconventional (yet highly effective) life hacks for more financial freedom in order to help you get closer to the optimal $75k/year. It claims that making valid consumer complaints is just one opportunity to learn the basic skills required to always get the most value for your money.
