The online dictionary definition states, “The joy derived from the misfortunes of others”.
Have you ever felt a little pleasure when some athletic team loses? An election loss by someone you do not respect? Etc. Etc.
One example from my past involves the Boston Celtics and Red Auerbach, their long time very successful coach. They made life miserable for Laker fans for many years. When they lost, I felt joy and pleasure. I never said that I was a nice person.
