The new study was led by Lawrence Williams of the University of Colorado.

The study was conducted at Yale University and was done by sending college students up an elevator with a total stranger.

While on the elevator, the stranger asked the student to hold either a cold cup of coffee, or a hot cup of coffee.

After the elevator ride was over, the students answered questions about the stranger.

Those that held the hot cup of coffee described the woman as being more generous, happier, more social, etc.
