Many companies worldwide have studied the concept of Dopamine and how it works. They have designed many platforms from knowing about Dopamine and how it affects our brains. Dopamine is a reward system for the brain. When people have Sex, Do Drugs, Play Video Games, Alcohol, Eat Junk Food, and Get lots of likes on Social Media Platforms, our dopamine systems are rewarded.

Even when it comes to shopping, we get this rush of exhilaration in our bodies. This is why I believe credit cards are so powerful for many of us to handle. You have this feeling, especially if you have cards up to 10,000 dollars. You can buy so many things in the world. It makes the possibility of squandering money abundant. According to Stieg and Cory, this has even been proven in a study.

"Using credit cards stimulate the brain reward system and an urge for further spending, according to a recent study from MIT that examined the neuroscience of buying things."
