Study reveals how we best like to get revenge

In the Bible God says leave getting back at people to Him. Deuteronomy 32:35 says To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence;. But you've probably noticed that people prefer to do that for themselves.

A new study finds:

  • Two thirds of both men and women admit to being vengeful.
  • Of those people, almost 40% have actually taken their revenge on at least one occasion, while some have taken their revenge as many as four times.
  • But apparently some folks like to wait to take their revenge, with only 14.4% exacting revenge immediately, sometimes within a minute.
  • Others like to wait, with 36% saying revenge took a week to serve, while 23% waited one to four weeks.
  • Some are even willing to wait longer, with 21% waiting between a month to a year, and 5% taking more than a year.

So, in what ways have people sought revenge against others? Well, according to the survey types of revenge include:

  • Infidelity
  • Damaging a car
  • Disclosing secrets or making false accusations
  • Trying to get someone fired
  • Belittling or humiliating someone
  • Gossiping
  • Parking a car in front of a garage
  • Breaking a promise

If someone waited a year to get revenge on me I doubt I'd even remember what they were mad at me to begin with! Plus I would think the one planning their revenge that long would be the biggest loser in the equation because they would be carrying a lot of anger with them for that year.
