    22 - Slightly Satisfied.

    Interesting.....

    From the link provided in the O.P. :

    20 – 24 Average score

    The average of life satisfaction in economically developed nations is in this range – the majority of people are generally satisfied, but have some areas where they very much would like some improvement. Some individuals score in this range because they are mostly satisfied with most areas of their lives but see the need for some improvement in each area. Other respondents score in this range because they are satisfied with most domains of their lives, but have one or two areas where they would like to see large improvements. A person scoring in this range is normal in that they have areas of their lives that need improvement. However, an individual in this range would usually like to move to a higher level by making some life changes.
    I would be this one: "mostly satisfied with most areas of their lives but see the need for some improvement in each area."
