Sub­ject­ing your­self to frus­tra­tion is like freak­ing your­self on a roller­coaster or in front of a hor­ror movie: it’s a vis­ceral body state that pro­vides ex­cite­ment and pos­i­tive feel­ings af­ter­wards, says brain re­searcher Ni­cole Prause. An­other sim­ile: it’s like need­ing to take a slash dur­ing an end­less meet­ing and then fi­nally let­ting go.
