    Well, if what he says is true, then happier people tend to be abnormal.

    actually. being more serious (did no one seriously catch my "but i might be biased :P" ?) ... I've read that its more like: 50% sociable, 75% calm, 60% orderly, 75% inquisitive, 60% agreeable would sort of equate what some of the big 5 people have said "off the cuff" as being more happy people. It really wouldn't test well as any MBTI type. However, even highly limbic people, while fairing more poorly during normal stuff, are more likely to "fight back" when pushed around and therefore have had their time and place over the years...

    The definition of happiness will vary from person to person.
    Heaven help us all if corporations who create the MBTI or the FFM are going to dictate to the world what constitutes a happy person.

    True, but I have a hunch they don't tell people what happiness should be before they ask them how happy they are.

    Happiness is being organized, haven't you heard?

    Now go hang up your clothes.

    And I have a hunch that even a suicidal person would claim they were "happy" if asked by an outsider, in order to project an air of normalcy.

    When I was a kid, I was very organized. Everything has its place, right?
    Mom came upstairs, opened my closet, and piles of shit fell out all over the floor.

    Yep, I was "organized."
    In mere seconds I could clean my room by throwing everything in sight behind a closed door.

    The definition of happiness is variable and/or elusive. For any corporation to claim "happier" people have certain percentages of x, y, and z from their model—such as the Five Factor Model— is ludicrous.

    I agree with this.

    Even people who are Limbic can be happy, in fact some might even claim to feel happiness "more intensely" when they experience or something than Calms. I've also met some really angry, stressed-out Organized people.

    What makes one person happy might make another miserable. Plus, contentment or satisfaction is far more likely than happiness, which tends to come in spurts.
