Dr. Happiness's "Objective Happiness Quiz"

A diversion for your Labor Day... just don't let the quiz results ruin your happy holiday! "Don't take the results too seriously. This is meant to be a fun way of learning how you can become happier..."
Ed Diener, aka “Dr. Happiness” is a leading researcher in positive psychology who coined the expression “subjective well-being” or SWB as the aspect of happiness that can be empirically measured. He argues for a strong genetic component to happiness, and has amassed some compelling data showing that external conditions do little to change one’s happiness... 
Diener was noted in a recent NewYork Times opinion piece ("Happiness, Philosophy and Science") as a pioneer in the new science of happiness. Take his  quiz here.
