Transcript 10 MONTROSE VOICE/FEBRUARY 7. 1986 Dr. Didato's Personality Quiz By Salvatore V. Didato, Ph.D. News America Syndicate Special to the Montrose Voice Happiness is an elusive yet constant goal of everyone—yes, even of psychologists. Should you think that these professionals are concerned only with the tragic and remorse aspects of behavior, you'd be wrong. They also probe for the traits of the truly happy man or woman. One of many such studies was done by the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. It involved national polls taken in 1976 and 1978. The questions asked of the respondents were similar to those on our quiz. To find what your happiness quotient is, answer the following items as objectively as you can. then read on for answers. 1. Most of the things I do are: boring (1); interesting (3); in-between (2). 2. Life doesn't seem to give me a chance (1); is usually lucky for me (3); in-between (2). . 3. My general level of stress is: high (1); low (3); in-between (2). 4. I am: worrisome (1); pretty secure (3); in-between (2). 5. I am generally: a restless type (1); an easygoing type (3); in-between (2). 6.1 have often: felt very lonely (1); had many friends (3); felt in-between (2). 7. I usually feel: dissatisfied with my accomplishments (1); satisfied with my accomplishments (3); in-between (2). How Happy Are You? 8. As far as how I handle decisions is concerned: I feel incompetent (1); I feel quite competent (3); I feel in-between. 9. I am generally: displeased with my neighborhood (1); happy with my neighborhood (3); in-between (2). 10. I am: discontented with my friends (1); pleased with my friends (3); in-between (2). □ Explanation How do you judge such a subjective state of being as happiness? Is it a balance between desires and satisfactions? A baby? A Bports car? A "thing called Joe?" There are many definitions. The Institute For Social Research (ISR) judged the sense of well-being on six quality-of-life scales (which are the basis for our quiz): outlook on life (items 1 and 2); stress level (3 and 4); positive versus negative feelings (5 and 6); feelings of personal competence (7 and 8); and overall satisfaction (9 and 10). On reviewing the ISR results, Psychology Today magazine raised an interesting question: Are there differences in happiness in various parts of the nation?

The country was divided into nine regions and those who made the highest scores on happiness were found to live in the central section of the country (i.e., Minnesota and the Dakotas, then directly south to the Gulf of Mexico). Those who scored lowest lived in the north-central and middle-Atlantic states (i.e., New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio). Does happiness change from generation to generation? Professor Angus Campbell of ISR, reviewing results up to 1981, says that it doesn't! Happiness and satisfaction have changed only slightly in the past 30 years. In 1951, for example, about 35% said they were very happy and today 30% declare they have a high sense of psychological well-being. □ Score Ours isn't an official test, of course, but generally speaking the way you answer the statements does reflect your inner state of mind. Total up all your points. Consider that a score of between 18 and 22 is average. Those with 23 and above show more joy in living.
