How Happy Are YOU?

Our experience of happiness can change from hour to hour and varies across cultures and nations--but overall, do you know how happy you usually are? Try the Scientific American 11-item online quiz and see how you measure up to the average happiness score for people in your country. Some questions relate to the past 24 hours, others to the past year--this is only a very basic estimate so relax :)

How Happy Are YOU? Challenge rules

  1. Complete this 11-item online quiz and see how happy you are in relation to others in your nation (if data exist for your country--they may not): http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=happiness-how-happy-are-you-quiz
  2. The brief written interpretation of your happiness score is more useful than the numbers generated. Just be happy you've completed this quiz and enjoy your day!
  3. Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.

Where Do You Fit In?

We can also use these numbers to tell how happy, on average, nations are (see chart and maps below). Although fewer items were used to compute the nation scores, they are generally parallel to the items on the test you just took. For positive feelings, Gallup researchers used only Enjoyment and Smiled/Laughed a lot to compute positive feelings. They included all of the negative feelings except boredom. So your score is not directly comparable to the average of people in your country. However, it can give you some idea of how your level of happiness compares to that of others around you, and around the world.

Claire Boo L How Happy Are YOU? Challenge

Contributorgold Claire Boo L I am apparently quite a happy person in general, which is cool. However on taking this challenge I thought of a quote I once read " Ask yourself if you are happy and you cease to be so", probably a very true statement..
