Jon Cousins gives his talk “Daily Well being Tracking as a Couple” at the Silicon Valley Quantified Self Meetup #12. He and his partner, Alex, track their well-being together. Their theory is that emotionally close couples all experience ups and downs together, and that being in tune with somebody else should mean that your ups and downs are kind of in sync, a kind of fellow feeling, maybe what Neuroscientists call feeling somebodies pain with neurons. Their combined wellbeing data suggested that since they started tracking they’ve become much closer.
