About the quiz: We call this the “Happiness Skills Quiz,” instead of a depression or anxiety test, because you can take it to measure concrete life skills related to your happiness, and especially to learn how you can become happier. This quiz, which is based on hundreds of recent scientific studies, focuses on lifestyles and habits that strongly relate to long-term happiness or Psychological Well-Being.

About the science behind the quiz: Our psychological well-being is affected by three main factors, including our genetic make up, our environment, as well as our thoughts and actions or "life skills." The Happiness Skills Quiz is a psychology quiz inspired by recent discoveries in Positive Psychology and the so-called Science of Happiness, which provide new insight on how to build resilience to depression, and in many cases, how to fight and relieve depression and anxiety naturally.
