Raising Happiness

Are you interested in how we study happiness?

Take part in a ground-breaking study lead by Aaron Jarden, president of the New Zealand Association of Positive Psychology. It is the first of its kind to survey people from around the world on what it means to be happy, and track their wellbeing over the course of a year.

The project is completely anonymous—you don't have to give any of your personal details—and takes about 25 to 30 minutes for each assessment point. The only participation requirements are that you are at least 16 years old and that you fill out online surveys once every three months for a year. Participation will only take approximately 2 hours total over the year. The study is voluntary, and you are free to withdraw at any stage.

If you decide to participate, you will receive an e-mail summary report of your scores and be entered into a drawing to win one of fifteen $100 Amazon.com vouchers. You will also be offered the opportunity to take one of three different free internet based well-being courses after you have completed the first three assessments.

When prompted for a study code on the second screen, please enter type "greatergood" into the text box. This will allow us to track our readers' results and to post general trends on the blog after each assessment. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions: email me or study leader Aaron Jarden. You can also learn more about the study here.

Sign up for the study now!

(Remember to type "greatergood" in the Study Code field.)
