Characteristics of Happy People

What makes happy people, happy? According to David Myers, there are several key factors that happy people share. Happy people tend to:

  • Have high self-esteem
  • Be extroverted
  • Be decisive
  • Have close relationships with family and friends
  • Delay immediate gratification
  • Be religious
  • Be forgiving
  • Have an optimistic explanatory style

How do you measure up to these characteristics?

If you think you fall short on identifying with any or all of these factors, you can begin to increase your levels of happiness. I suggest selecting one, maybe two, factors to begin improving or incorporating into your life.

I would love to hear which of these characteristics you select, or are working on as you pave your road to happiness.
