Social Comparison

Social comparison bias is a product of human insecurity. It refers to feeling dislike, or competitiveness with people that you see as someone superior to yourself; physically or mentally. If you remember high school you probably remember how it was normal to feel jealous, or competitive, or to completely dislike the kids who were top athletes, or that got the best grades, or seemed more attractive or popular, etc.
