Just when you think you’ve heard it all, some researcher has come up with the notion that Loneliness can be “transmitted” from one person to another
Talking about the loneliness condition, John Cacioppo, a University of Chicago psychologist and a leading scholar of loneliness, said that loneliness is not a “property” of an individual – it can be “transmitted” even to people who may not be in a direct contact with a lonely person.
They suggest that
people should recognize loneliness and help lonely individuals
Would they be doing so at the risk of ending up lonely themselves? Or what?
If anyone could explain that one, I’ll be much obliged.
