Oxford Happiness Questionnaire

Welcome to your Oxford Happiness Questionnaire

A 29-item scale measures your overall happiness. The questionnaire developed by psychologists Michael Argyle and Peter Hills at Oxford University.


  1. Please read the statements carefully, some of the questions are phrased positively and others negatively.
  2. Don’t take too long over individual questions; there are no “right” or “wrong” answers (and no trick questions).
  3. The first answer that comes into your head is probably the right one for you.
  4. If you find some of the questions difficult, please give the answer that is true for you in general or for most of the time.
