How Happy Are You?

Take The Oxford Happiness Questionnaire and your score will be emailed to you. The most unhappy score you can get is a "1" and the happiest is a "6." The average person scores slightly over 4.

Below are a number of statements about happiness. Rate how much you agree or disagree with each by clicking on the appropriate circle. You will need to read the statements carefully because some are phrased positively and others negatively. Don't take too long over individual questions; there are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers and no trick questions. The first answer that comes into your head is probably the right one for you. If you find some of the questions difficult, please give the answer that is true for you in general or for most of the time.

When you are done rating all the statements, hit the "submit" button below and your score will be emailed to you.
