    I wonder… if the Possessions axis continued going down below zero, would there be some correlation with happiness? i.e. less than nothing = more/less happiness?

  2. Neffy says:

    Depends how you acquire those possessions:
    Credit: Huge correlation in fact destroys happines.
    Cash: No correlation. But sweet corn! How it helps!

    you can’t have less than nothing. even having bad luck or a debt is a possession.

    I love you. Will you marry me?

    No correlation once you’re above the poverty line and not struggling to feed yourself and your family, unable to sleep at night because you’re too cold/wet/hungry, working fifteen hours a day, a debt slave, etc.

    But after that, there’s no correlation between happiness and possessions.

    I came here from h2g2.

    Posessions is the X axis, and it’s a bell curve.

    Yup, or all lottery winners would be the happiest people in the world.

    actually they’ve done studies to show that lottery winners ARE happier than everyone else.

    I think the anonymous that posted about the bell curve is completely right.

    Save the money you would spend on posessions to spend on travelling and stuff.
