Don’t bother telling a scrooge to cheer up…He was born that way.
A study conducted by Vanderbilt University reveals that grumpy people’s brains are wired to make them grouchier than other folks…
It stems from a portion of the brain called the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. And the more activity in that area, the more likely a person is to be a grump…It’s also the part of the brain that controls sweating, stomach acidity, heart rate and other physical feelings associated with stress and bad moods.
