has its downsides. While people are in a good mood, they are more creative, and interested in helping people, however they are also more susceptible to ebing manipulated (i.e. giving into people, always saying yes). Being in a good mood also brings forth heuristic thinking, which can be good or bad. This occurs because being happy may lessen our ability and desire to process information; people in good moods often rely on the "availability heuristic."
