Life Satisfaction Survey

How satisfied are you with the life that you are living? This quick five-item survey was developed to measure life satisfaction. We are interested in learning to what extent this measure is correlated with measure of social ability and other traits. Participate in this and other experiments to help us understand the relationship between social skills and happiness.

The task you will engage in to complete the Life Satisfaction study is a simple survey. You will see 5 statements, one at a time, and rate them with respect to how well they apply to yourself on the 1-7 scale shown above (left). At the end of the study, you will be presented with histograms that reflect the distribution of other participants' responses on the survey. Your score relative to others will be shown via a vertical line, as shown above (right). Please note that receiving high or low scores on the scales of this survey is not necessarily a good or bad thing. Low life satisfaction can mean unhappiness, but can also signal ambition, whereas high satisfaction may reflect happiness or complacency.
