Susan Cain’s “Quiet”; The reward-sensitive person

A reward-sensitive person is highly motivated to seek rewards-from a promotion to a lottery jackpot to an enjoyable evening out with friends. Reward sensitivity motivates us to pursue goals like sex and money, social status and influence. It prompts us to climb ladders and reach for far away branches in order to gather life’s choicest fruits.

But sometimes we are too sensitive to rewards. Reward sensitivity on overdrive gets people into all kinds of trouble. We can get so excited by the prospect of juicy prizes, like winning big in the stock market, that we take outsized risks and ignore obvious warning signals.”
