From the Huffington Post: The Authentic Happiness Test from the University of Pennsylvania. But HuffPo columnist Gretchen Rubin, who’s working on her own Happiness Project, doesn’t tell you that you have to register and give personal information because of course, it’s an experiment for UPenn and they want to know your income so they can find out, at last, if money does bring happiness. Dr. Seligman (at right) promotes Positive Psychology. He’s happy. Wikipedia describes Positive Psychology this way:
Positive psychology is a recent branch of psychology that “studies the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive”. Positive psychologists seek “to find and nurture genius and talent”, and “to make normal life more fulfilling”, not to cure mental illness.
