Full textSelfreport on four questions: Using the 1-7 scale below, indicate how much each of the following statements applies for you. A My life is largely going the way I wanted B My living conditions are excellent C I am satisfied with my life D So far, I have gotten the important things I want in life Answers rated: 7 applies completely ... 1 applies not at all Computation: A+B+C+D divided by 4 (In the original scale item 5 reads: 'If I could live my life over, I would change nothing'. This item is left out in this selection because a positive answer to this question does not necessarily mean that the respondent doesn't like the life he/she actually lives.)
