    I voted an 8. I'm quite happy, but it ain't quite a 9.

    There's plenty of things I wouldn't mind being different, plenty of things I could be happier about. But I am happy with what I have. As long as I have my mind, I wouldn't go much lower in happiness. I don't need much. :P

    10 is never gonna happen. :P

    I put 7. I'm not quite where I need to be, I need some work and help.. but I am generally happy with my current status. I'm not depressed, not on the verge of being so, and I have a lot of support and options still. I think that's about all a gal could ask for.

    It seems each of us has a set point of happiness and we oscillate around that set point.

    And if we wish to become happier, we need to raise our set point of happiness.

    Interestingly, we can raise our set point of happiness by being kind to others.

    But we must keep on being kind to others otherwise we fall back to our natural set point of happiness.

    My dear fellow Sevens, it seems we are in the majority. So we are in a position to raise the general level of happiness. All we have to do is to be kind to one another.

    And seven is a lucky number, is it not?

    I would be interested in seeing this by type.
