Cosas Que Leo #198: SPITE… AND THE UPSIDE OF YOUR DARK SIDE, Simon McCarthy-Jones

“Spite can function like the colorful markings on an insect. It warns of poison. It signals ‘here be monsters’. As a result, the person you spite improves their co-operation with you, and you alone, rather than with everyone. Similarly, other people might see you performing costly punishment, or be told about it, realise the danger you pose, and also increase their co-operation with you specifically. Spite is a signal that you are not to be messed with, which can benefit you.”
