A new study has found that happiness is overrated -- it feels better to be right.

For the study, researchers had a husband always agree with his wife. He would never argue, question her, or do anything but agree and smile.

The wife did not know about the study.

By the twelfth day of the study, the husband had to stop. He claimed his wife had become so cocky about always being right that she had become way more critical of everything he did, and he could not take it any more.
