Happiness Quizzes & Trivia

Happiness is both the easiest thing to define in triteness and truisms, and the hardest thing to explain in any way that really matters. What makes us happy has been explained – or has been attempted to be explained – by religious leaders, by psychologists, by research scientists, and by philosophers – but what is happiness?

Is it just a bunch of dopamine dripping through our brains? Is it a mindset that can overcome any matter that gets in the way? Is it a sort of peace that can only be found in faith or religious fervor?

Don’t worry (be happy) too much about definitions, but instead explore more about what happiness may be and what it can mean for you by taking our quizzes.
