Life Satisfaction Quiz


Life satisfaction refers to an individual's overall feelings about their life. In other words, life satisfaction is a holistic evaluation rather than one about any specific point in time or any one domain of life.

There is no single key to life satisfaction. Think instead of a recipe with many ingredients. Social relationships and personal goals based on one's values play a crucial role in developing a strong sense of satisfaction.


To give you personalized guidance, we measure three domains that contribute to Life Satisfaction. Each of these domains comprises seven areas. Therefore, understanding your life satisfaction scores starts with recognizing some of its components.

  • Psychological wealth is more than money—it is also your attitude, goals, and engagement at work.

  • Happiness not only feels good, but it is also beneficial to relationships, work, and health.

  • It is helpful to set realistic expectations about happiness. No one is completely happy all the time!

  • Thinking is an essential piece of happiness; boosting our cognition can increase our satisfaction if done appropriately (Pursuit of Happiness, n.d.).
