Why do people feel the pleasure of danger: racing car or bike at high speed, jumping with a parachute or dive with the sharks?

We tend to experience the thrill of danger. In the 1970s, an experiment was conducted one interesting experiment. Several monkeys were placed in a cage with pillars on which they could climb up. The top of one of the pillars has been under electrical voltage. When a monkey climbed on it, it received a light electric shock. It was found that this pillar became the most popular. All the monkeys who participated in the experiment, expressed a desire to climb on it. But when the electricity is turned off, animals lost interest in it. As a result of the experiment, it was concluded that the monkeys tend to excitation, even if the price is pain. They’re looking for it in the sense of danger.

Most of us live in the security zone. But we like the danger zone, even if sometimes we find ourselves in the zone of trauma (like a monkey who liked to climb the pillar, despite they got electric shock).
