Formula for Happiness


Formula for Happiness

Scientists have developed an equation for happiness. It takes into account expectations, rewards, and past outcomes in order to predict momentary delight. The researchers formulated their equation in an experiment with just 26 participants, but they then confirmed their findings with a smartphone game played by more than 18,000.

Even when researchers controlled for other factors, such as social background and wealth, the association remained. More… Discuss
