Shock a survey

Slashdot linked to an Article about the science of happiness, that linked to one researchers website/business thingy helping people to be happier.

That had 3 personality tests, Perhaps the most interesting was to identify your 5 strengths, I was extremely strong in the following. (Like scoring in the 95 to 100th percentile strong).

  1. Judgment, critical thinking, and open-mindedness
  2. Curiosity and interest in the world
  3. Love of learning
  4. Caution, prudence, and discretion
  5. Creativity, ingenuity, and originality

On the depression scale I scored 15 out of 60 putting me at the edge of mildly depressed.

On their Authentic Happiness Scale I got 61 out of the range 24..240, not that they currently know what it means.

And oh yeah, and these people know nothing about making online quizzes. Where's the box filled with HTML so I can cut-n-paste my results.
