What is Life Satisfaction?

Life satisfaction measures how content an individual is with their life, considering all aspects. It reflects an overall assessment of happiness and contentment, and psychologists often use it to evaluate an individual’s well-being. It has been found to correlate with different activities such as work, relationships, leisure, education, and health. People with higher life satisfaction generally report having more positive thoughts, better emotional regulation capabilities, excellent overall mental health, and reduced stress levels.

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

  1. Self: The areas contributing to this factor are self, physical fitness, grit, leisure, coping, material property, spirituality, and moral code.

  2. Relationships: The areas contributing to this factor are family bonds, relationships with friends and colleagues, quality of relationships, use of discretion in relationships, frequency of iterations, social connections, and norms in relationships.

  3. Community: The areas contributing to this factor are social position and prestige, political influence, culture, social welfare, political freedom, social equality, and economic welfare and social capability.

  4. Career: The areas contributing to this factor are performance at school, performance at work, returns from work, learning and growth, day-to-day activities, work-life balance, work environment, and use of strengths.

The Talent Transformation Life Satisfaction quiz measures the attitude towards one's life rather than assessing current feelings. With understanding, time and persistence, people can become happier and more satisfied. Individuals who have experienced a loss tend to recover over time. Those with dissatisfying relationships or careers often introduce changes that will make them happier. When someone tends to be chronically dissatisfied, they can ask themselves how to develop more positive attitudes to life and the world. Your Life Satisfaction report will tell you a lot about your level of life satisfaction and what you can do to improve it.

What is the basis for this quiz?

This quiz is primarily based on theories in positive psychology, specifically on Ed Diener's extensive work in the areas of well-being and life satisfaction. Diener identified four "ingredients for a happy life":

  • 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.).

Why should I take this quiz?

Not only does greater life satisfaction make you feel happier and enjoy life more, but it also has a positive impact on your health and well-being. In turn, your well-being impacts your contributions, productivity, and performance. And for employers improving employee well-being increases performance and decreases uncertified sick leave, turnover, and stress-related compensation claims.
