Gifting gives more pleasure than receiving

Science is showing what we already knew, giving feels better than receiving.

One example of where I've felt this was when giving away ice cream cones at arctica to the people in line. People were clamoring for them, and then all of a sudden, I hear behind me "WE WANT ICE CREAM" the ice mongers had all banded together to yell out to get my attention. This massive rapid gifting was intense, but great.
