The Power Of A Smiley Face    by    Ruth Utnage

I was sitting in a class the other morning following along by writing the question down and then writing the answer I thought to be true. Whenever I got it wrong I drew a frowney face, : ( , but whenever I got it right I drew a smiley face, : ).

This got me thinking, in your iPhone and Facebook games your brain gets rewarded via coin collection, special rewards, sounds etc. A simple smiley face does that too. I drew the face as a reward for a good job and it surprised me that if I looked inward, it made me feel good.

What simple things make you feel rewarded?
