the happiness formula

The Formula:
Happiness = P + (5 x E) + (3 x H)
P stands for personal characteristics
E for existence (health, financial stability and friendships)
H is higher order, and covers self-esteem, confidence, ambitions and sense of humor.
All of these can be established by answering four questions, answering on a scale of 1 to 10:
1. "Are you outgoing, energetic, flexible and open to change?"
2. "Do you have a positive outlook, bounce back quickly from setbacks and feel that you are in control of your life?"
3. "Are your basic life needs met, in relation to personal health, finance, safety, freedom of choice and sense of community?"
4. "Can you call on the support of people close to you, immerse yourself in what you are doing, meet your expectations and engage in activities that give you a sense of purpose?"
P is the answer for Questions 1 and 2
E for Question 3
H for Question 4.
Put them into the formula and you'll get a rating out of 100.
Over 80, and you get a happiness medal to keep forever and ever, because chances are it won't last long.
Under 20, and you probably can't read this over your wailing, but at least now you can quantify exactly how miserable you are.
You're welcome
