Similarly, receiving negative feedback on an emotional intelligence quiz increased participants' later likelihood of choosing to play a game that could demonstrate and improve their intellectual abilities (Clash of Clans) versus one they would enjoy more and have more fun playing (Fruit Ninja).

Confusing article, but I loved this part.

My short takeaway:
The average chimp brain place greater weight on negative factors than positive ones.

Not that that leads to bad outcomes intrinsically, but hey, just how easy is it to chimp brain manipulate you?
Maybe try not as singing so much weight to negative factors when rescission making.

Generally we see this easily when we specifically mention fear, right?
Don't let fear overly guide your thinking, don;t let fear dictate your life choices to you.
But really it can be any negative influence not just a fear of something.

So there ya go, if your animal fear run brain is more in charge, there may be some hope that your natural reactions to some negative stimulus could help you make choices to improve yourself.

While at the same time, did you notice that negative feelings and reactions, go hand in hand for making it easy to  manipulate the average chimp brain to do what you want them to?

And then we gotta get back to wondering, if a manipulator has our collective longer term future in mind, or just their own selfish immediate interests?
