  1. Need that protein, sugar
  2. Thanks for supplying this, Cak. For zonsop (and possibly also Doob): http://www.scalesandmeasures.net/files/files/General Well Being Scale (1970).pdf
  3. See items here: http://www.personal.psu.edu/cgi-bin/users/j/5/j5j/IPIP/shortipipneo1.cgi Standby!
  4. Aes already pointed toward this theory (above). Still: why should we believe social support is greater in importance for happiness or well-being than potential other factors?
  5. Keep in mind that none of the cited material so far commits to either the Jungian or Myers-Briggs "feeling" construct.
  6. The operative term here is "external". This much doesn't entail that extraverts are generally happier and experience higher levels of subjective well-being than intraverts.
  7. Thanks for pointing to the inventories, Doob. I've only just now begun familiarizing with them, so I'll return to your questions if I do so sufficiently. I've encountered the same finding you've pointed to, Aes. Perhaps later, I'll see whether I have any of the relevant sources saved. For now, my own main questions here are: Why is positive emotionality so widely subsumed within extraversion by modern personality scientists? For example: why has the opposite relation--i.e., between negative emotionality (neuroticism) and intraversion/low extraversion--not been established? Given that neuroticism stands alone as an independent personality factor relative to the other four FFM factors...why has positive emotionality not managed to achieve the same, for itself?
  8. For an introduction to the topic of extraversion/introversion, happiness, and subjective well-being (SWB) all within the context of Western psychological research, read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraversion_and_introversion#Extraversion.2C_introversion.2C_and_happiness With the above in mind: Why do you think the general finding mentioned in this thread's title has been replicated so robustly? I have my own speculations and theories, but I want to hear what you think, first. Please feel free to bring up Myers-Briggs or Jungian introversion/extroversion, societal considerations (e.g., values), and/or cultural relativity--among other potential tie-ins.
