5。职业妇女

One of the questions in the survey asked people if they suffered from headaches, sleeplessness, worries, loneliness, etc.-- since people who do consider themselves less happy than those won don't. Married women who do not work are much more likely to have these kinds of symptoms," the book says. "Employed wives are less anxious and worried, and less likely to feel worthless than housewives."

这一段是讲一份充实的工作的重要性。

6。年龄和幸福

Despite widespread belief that the middle years are the happiest, the survey says this isn't so. Nor does old age inevitably mean the onset of unhappiness.
An intriguing sidelight of the survey is the discovery that people become gradually less happy with the state of their health from age 20 to age 45, but then things level off. "From the age of 45 on, people do not report any noticeable change in the extent to which health is a problem or a source of unhappiness."

As might be expected, major factors contributing to unhappiness in old age are reduced income, loss of a spouse, and the boredom of retirement. Yet, on the whole, "the reported happiness levels of people in the later years, including a great many who have retired, is no lower than in any other group." In fact, older people are more likely to say that they are very happy than any other age group in the survey.

这一段是说老年也不是那么糟糕。

7。收入和教育

A large part of the influence of money and education on happiness derives from one's original expectations. If you thought you'd earn a lot, and did, you may have a "so what?" attitude. But if your expectations have been overfulfilled, the happiness that comes from getting more than you thought you would get can be quite pronounced. "The happiness that comes from getting more than you thought you would get can be quite pronounced. "The happiest groups were those with little education who earned a lot; while the highly educated who earned a lot were not so well off psychologically."

幸福与期望有关,受过的教育越高,幸福的机会越小,不知道是不是这样?......

8。工作和幸福

Satisfaction with your work is more important element of happiness than anything except love and marriage, the survey makes clear. Ranking various occupations by the happiness of the workers revealed that clerks were at the bottom of the the range, secretaries and blue-collar workers came next, the architects, college professors, nurses and managers. And at the top of the contentment scale came clergymen, psychologists and entertainers.
"One of the enigmas of this survey," Freedman writes, "is that lawyers and, even more so, doctors, rated themselves as relatively unhappy."

我知道做职员感觉很差,但没想到居然是最差。感觉最好的那几个职业,很出人意料呢。

9。童年和青春期

Although the key to happiness does not lie in one's childhood experiences, it does seem to be associated with a child's relationship with the same-sex parent and with childhood guilt -- "two factors from early life closely related to adult unhappiness."

男孩与父亲的关系,女孩与母亲的关系,对他/她将来的幸福影响最大。就是说父亲对男孩更重要,母亲对女孩更重要?

10。结论:如何才能幸福:

To love and be loved in return. To have enough money, but not necessarily a great deal. To have meaning and direction in life, and a sense of control over it. To have received more from life than you expected.

我觉得这段话说得太好了,真得堪称是幸福的秘诀。我把这篇文章打出来,其实就是想让大家看最后这段话。在这新年来临之际,把这段话送给大家,希望每个人(包括我)最终都能找到幸福。

这篇东西,我转了哈,算是给自己也给朋友06年的祝福,多谢~

欢迎转载啊,不过以后最好能说明出处。

幸福确实与期望有关。受过的教育程度越高,期望值就一定越大吗?我看未必。受教育的程度越低的人,不得不降低他的期望值。但一定符合其主观意愿吗?

喜欢这篇文章,有人说,成功是得到想得到的,幸福是接受所拥有的~想想也是有点道理的

幸福是与期望有关的。大学时一个经济学老师告诉过我们有关幸福的这么一个计算公式:幸福=效用/期望。
现在想来的确是这样的。

幸福是什么?其实幸福没有绝对的答案,关键在于你的生活态度。善于抓住幸福的人才懂得什么是幸福。一直以为感受幸福是件很困难的事,那是一种灯火阑珊处的境界。经过岁月的流年以后,才明白,幸福其实很简单,只要心灵有所满足、有所慰藉就是幸福。
健康的活着就是一种莫大的幸福!!!
