The recent literature on inequity aversion assumes that subjects compare themselves to others. Our paper studies how a subject evaluates others’ happiness. We do that by combining information from self-reported answers with guessing experiments under economic incentives. The basic result is that 66% of the subjects evaluates others differently from one’s self, and that those who appear to be happier (less happy) tend to believe that others are less happy (happier) than themselves.
