How positive is your mindset? How positive is your self-talk? How positive is your communication? How positive is your life? Turns out the emerging field of positive psychology is designed to study happiness, vitality, and meaning in life. Where do you place yourself on Andrews & Withey’s single-question Delighted-Terrible Scale?

7  delighted
6  pleased
5  mostly satisfied
4  mixed
3  mostly dissatisfied
2  unhappy
