I can relate to no. 23 about people who volunteer being more satisfied with their lives. I am a volunteer teacher in a primary school in a Black Township in South Africa and it is enormously satisfying and at the age of 77 it has given me a real boost which I doubt I would have had otherwise.

Some of these comments are quite amusing. Some people seem to think they know better than those who have studied and researched. Thank you for this interesting information.

All are very interesting. 7 you're more logical when you think in another language is true for me since English is my 3rd language. I go my native one when emotional.

I disagree with alot of these. Especially doing several tasks at the same time. Heck. I do that all the time. As a cashier most of my working years I multi tasked all the time. Have to. And I don't even know a second language. And there are many others.

some of these points sound like they were incorrectly translated from some foreign language with hilarious results (eg.3) and some of the others don't seem plausible.
