Monkeys stay away from meanies

4 posts in this topic

When does a monkey turn down a free treat? When it is offered by a selfish person, apparently.

Given the choice between accepting goodies from helpful, neutral or unhelpful people, capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella) tend to avoid individuals who refuse aid to others, according to a study published today in Nature Communications.

I saw a bumper sticker recently, it said: "Mean People Suck".

Apparently, monkeys feel much the same way.
