How do you measure happiness? Can you measure happiness?
Just a mental question I had that I found interesting during one of my classes. We were learning about independent and dependent variables, the independent variable being the two groups you're testing, and the dependent variable being what you're measuring. My professor gave an example of a survey experiment between two control groups as two independent variables, and that the dependent variable of what was being measured, was happiness. They were measuring happiness. It just made me think; CAN you measure happiness? I just found it interesting. Thoughts? thanks in advance. :) (DISCLAIMER; just because this category includes the word religion, does not make it a religious question. The category is religion, SPIRITUALITY, and PHILOSOPHY. This question is a question of philosophy. Just thought I would make that clear; some of you seem to have a hard time with that.) thanks. :)
