Some people seem to naturally lean towards gratitude, while others deeply resent having to acknowledge anyone other than themselves for the good things that come their way. It doesn't seem to correlate to how much or little people have either.
What do you think creates people with a thankful attitude? (I don't mean grovelling, just appreciative)
What usefulness do you think there is in being grateful (or do you see any) other than as a social lubricant? Is the benefit solely for the receiver or for the giver or both?
Do you think that insecurity has anything to do with the lack of gratitude?
Does gratitude have a role in your world view/set of values and if so, what?
