Researchers conducted a study on how and when we show our appreciation and there are some interesting findings.
For starters, the average adult will say “thank you” 207 times a month, which is roughly 6.8 times per day.
That’s a lot of gratitude, sure, but some of it is FAKE.
On average, 54 of those thank yous are insincere.
About a quarter of people surveyed think that’s a problem, because genuine appreciation is “dying out.”
33% said they’d still prefer to hear the words, even if the person is just saying “thank you” for the sake of it.
And 55% of people claim they have become “more grateful” during the Covid pandemic.
