The Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS; Lyubomirsky, 2007; Lyubomirsky & Lepper, 1999) is a brief questionnaire that determines how happy you are. Using your own happiness criteria, you are asked to make an overall assessment about how happy (or unhappy) you are. The measure has good psychometric properties, and is strongly correlated with other psychological well-being scales.


For each of the following statements and/or questions, please select the point on the scale that you feel best describes you. There are five statements that you may agree or disagree with.

Using the 1-7 scale, indicate your agreement with each item. Please be open and honest in your response.

1 = Strongly Disagree
2 = Disagree Slightly
3 = Disagree
4 = Neither Agree or Disagree
5 = Slightly Agree
6 = Agree
7 = Strongly Agree
