Recently, I found a journal on the internet and searched the original paper here.

Article: http://jp.wsj.com/public/page/0_0_WJPP_7000-439150.html
Original paper: http://www.pnas.org/content/109/21/8038.full

I haven’t finished reading an original paper, but according to the Japanese journal, telling about yourself makes you feel happy, and this was proved by neuroscience.

When you disclose information about yourself, the brain area which is related to satisfaction or pleasure will react actively.

This is why Twitter or SNS are very popular these days.

Do you think you like disclosing the information about yourself? ^^
