Schadenfreude is the peculiar pleasure people derive from others' misfortune. There's evidence that children begin to experience schadenfreude early in life. For example, at four years old, children found someone else's misfortune — like tripping and falling into a muddy puddle — funnier if that person had previously done something to hurt other children, such as breaking their toys.
Together, these studies show that schadenfreude is a complex emotion that seems to be deeply ingrained in the human condition.
