Psychologists studied crowd behavior at a U2 concert. Thereís a trick to cutting-in-line without attracting the wrath of others. Donít jump in front of die-hard fans.

We never like a cheater.

Some styles of cheating are more acceptable than others. At least thatís what psychologists found at the U2 concert. People got peeved whether a stranger cuts in front or behind. Itís all the same. In particular if youíre only a casual fan. Jumping ahead in line is not playing fair. So seek out friends. When you join another person in the line, weíre less apt to criticize the maneuver.
