comment What drives users to play Reddit's “The Button” game?
I'm interested in how people pick the time to press the button. Somehow this button game seems to me to be similar to the "prisoner's dilemma" game played on the global scale.

comment Why do people avoid taking the last “donut”?
I agree with the culture thing - I heard the very same thing in the context of Chinese culture, where it's apparently rude to take the last of anything. The "guests are still hungry" statement makes this tradition a lot clearer - if they werent hungry, there would be more than 1 left.

comment What makes disengaged participants tired / exhausted after corporate meetings?
I've clarified the question to specifically exclude speakers or meeting host. Those people may not feel the effects as acutely as people who are not engaged for an hour.

comment Do lonely people get addicted more easily than social counterparts?
@ChrisStronks I agree with the peer context strongly linked to relapse to addictive behaviors. This is why a lot of addictive games strongly push the "Social" element to them. I would say that ALL examples of incredibly addictive video games are social in nature. For example farmville or online MMORPGs. It's possible to quit these games, but when multiple friends are playing them, they will continuously pull each other back into the game.
