Can happiness be measured? The Oxford Happiness Questionnaire attempts to do just that. Developed by Michael Argyle and Peter Hills of Oxford Brookes University, and originally published in the Journal of Personality and Individual Differences, it’s one several measures of “subjective wellbeing” (aka happiness) constructed by scientific research psychologists.
It may be helpful in charting your own sense of happiness. When you pay attention to something, and measure it, you’re more likely to find ways to improve it, and to know whether those methods really work.
