Test Your Happiness Curious what your current level of happiness is? Take the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire and find out. Measuring happiness is not an easy task, which is why we leave it to the professionals to provide the scientific studies needed to measure the happiness or subjective well-being of their subjects. There are several widely used and respected questionnaires to find out your level of happiness. Curious what your current level of happiness is? Take the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire and find out. The Oxford Happiness Questionnaire, recently featured on the Dr. Oz Show, was developed by psychologists Michael Argyle and Peter Hills at Oxford University. Take a few moments to take the survey. This is a good way to get a snapshot of your current level of happiness. It also 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. It is encouraged to try the assessment several times over some extended period: take the questionnaire now, and return at a later date to take it again, comparing scores (perhaps after trying some exercises to increase happiness). There are just 29 questions, so it won’t take long. Instructions Below are a number of statements about happiness. Please indicate how much you agree or disagree with each by entering a number in the blank after each statement, according to the following scale: 1 = strongly disagree 2 = moderately disagree 3 = slightly disagree 4 = slightly agree 5 = moderately agree 6 = strongly agree Please read the statements carefully, because some are phrased positively and others negatively. Don't take too long over individual questions; there are no "right" or "wrong" answers (and no trick questions). The first answer that comes into your head is probably the right one for you. If you find some of the questions difficult, please give the answer that is true for you in general or for most of the time. Those statements marked with an 'R' will be scored in reverse.
