Are you good? Are you happy? How do you know? How good or happy are you compared to others? The daily choices we make can tell a lot about our values, intentions, and attitude, but sometimes people want more quantitative, “scientific” data. If you’re a fan of online quizzes, are curious about how your “goodness” might be perceived by others, and want to help contribute data for several ongoing studies, check out a recent blog post from Jason Marsh of Greater Good Magazine. He recently shared several “scientific tests” that measure a variety of factors on the “goodness” scale.
Marsh’s tests cover several areas, including:
- How moral are you?
- How prejudiced?
- How empathic?
- How socially intelligent?
- How compassionate?
The tests only provide indications and generalizations, but they’re still fun (most take no more than a few minutes to complete) and informative.
