Study Claims: Success of Near and Dears’ is the Source of Ultimate Happiness

A new research has found that people relate their happiness to that of the wellbeing and success of their near and dear ones.

Researchers at the University of Cambridge, England, found that both men and women believe a satisfied, settled family life is the source of ultimate happiness for them.

Lead researcher, Professor Jaqueline Scott stated that men and women might view happiness in their own different ways. Although, when you dig deeper and look at the character of their opinions, you find that in both cases their happiness is attached with that of their loved ones.

The researchers carried their study as part of the British Household Panel Survey in which they evaluated more than 10,300 adults from 5,500 households all over England.

In the study that was carried on from 1997 till 2002, the examiners observed, what sort of life influenced people in what way.

Under the investigation, all participants were put questions such as, what according to them was necessary for a content and successful living that might well protect their standard of living.

After evaluating the answers, it was found that no less than one third of the participants selected health, family and money as the only means of joy.
