I will analyze the data gained and will formulate a conclusion. I don’t think much research has been done of the effects of Positive Psychology on those people with a higher than average level of happiness, since the catalyst for this research came from the desire to augment pathological treatment for depression. It will be interesting to see the impact, if any, on my current level of happiness. Works Cited Lyubomirsky, Sonja. The How of Happiness.
Other social scientists, on the contrary, have been working on the theme for decades. Sociologists were pioneers in discovering empirical indicators of the standard of living and researching quality of life.

(Morales, et al., 2013) and (Wolf & Zohlnhofer, 2009) had consistent results. They found a negative correlation between public and private education spending regardless of the given dependent variable.

“Familiarity breeds contempt” writes the philosopher Lucius Apuleius as he describes the relationship between gods and kings. Although the phrase has been bastardized and diluted to justify friendship failures, it does nothing to explain or propose solutions to recovery of the relationship. Apuleius’ phrase has real life applications in describing why it is unwise to become roommates with a close friend. I have seen multiple relationships, including my own, fall apart after becoming roommates and thought that I had a solid grasp on the dangers of moving in with friends. However, the idea that familiarity breeds contempt does not take into account successful roommate relationships between friends.

Claudia M. Santosa and colleagues carried out a study at Stanford University in 2006. The participants were bipolar patients, major depressive disorder patients, creative discipline controls, and healthy controls. They completed four creativity measures including Barron-Welsh Art Scale (BWAS). This test contained figures that varies complexity and symmetry. The participants gave responses as “like” or “dislike” to those figures (Barron & Welsh, 1952).
The remaining 12% is what Brooks calls the 4 basic values. The four values for happiness are faith, family, community, and work. There is little disagreement that faith, family, and community contribute to happiness, but work could be criticized.
