Positive psychology
Make normal life more fulfilling. Understand the positive emotions fulfilling
aspects of human behavior. Happiness can be defined by many different
factors – age (midlife crisis), finances (as long as you have enough money
for the necessities after 75K a year – better to enjoy your job than make a lot
of money), education and intelligence (IQ over 120 does not mean more
happy – depends on social skills etc), marriage (Seligman says it is related to
happiness – married people are happier than single people), personality (Big
Five – openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness,
neuroticism), social ties (health, close relationships, how participants deal
with their troubles, healthy and strong relationships), religion (religious =
emotional well-being and lower rates of delinquency)
