Do You Learn More From Your Successes or Mistakes?

Since we all make mistakes, it's comforting to take solace in the notion that we learn from them. Now some MIT researchers have gone and ruined that for us by conducting a study that suggests that our brains learn more when we succeed, not when we do something wrong.

While studying monkeys, the scientists discovered that the monkeys' brains processed information better after the monkey did something right. This learning led to better behavior as the study went on.

Despite this scientific study, I've always found that facing failure can force a person to confront the behaviors and patterns that need to change in her life. Then again, success reveals the type of actions and hard work that get results. Have you learned more from your successes or your mistakes?
