The Satisfaction with Life Scale was devised in 1980 by University of Illinois psychologist Edward Diener, a founding father of happiness research. Since then the scale has been used by researchers around the world.
Read the following 5 statements. Then use a 1 - 7 scale to rate your level of agreement.
1 - 2 --> Not at all true
3 - 5 -- > Moderately true
6 - 7 --> Absolutely true
- In most ways my life is close to my ideal
- The conditions of my life are excellent
- I am satisfied with my life
- So far I have gotten the important things I want in life
- If I could live my life over, I would change almost nothing.
- 31 to 35 - you are extremely satisfied with your life
- 26 to 30 - very satisfied
- 21 to 25 - slightly satisfied
- 20 - neutral point
- 15 to 19 - slightly dissatisfied
- 10 to 14 - dissatisfied
- 5 to 9 - extremely dissatisfied
Anyway, no matter what your score is, I think we should live happily!!! Cheers!!! :)
