- Positive emotions in early life and longevity: findings from the nun study.
Within its thick red brick walls are bright paintings of nuns and children. Organ hymns waft from a circular chapel, and nuns attend Mass and murmur rosaries under a white vaulted dome.
The human capacity for positive and negative feelings is shaped by the forces of evolution, thus the evolutionary perspective should be relevant to the study of happiness. This paper attempts to identify the more pertinent innate qualities of the human brain, and discusses how the evolutionary perspective can be used to relate these qualities to the study of happiness. Two aspects of our evolutionary legacy appear to be particularly relevant: One, the consequences of discords between the present way of living and the environment of evolutionary adaptation; and two, the presence of feelings designed to influence behaviour. The purpose of the present paper is to both expand on these two aspects and thereby arrive at an evolutionary based description of happiness; and to discuss the relationship between this biological account and some current approached to the study of happiness.

These women had similar lifestyles, socioeconomic status, access to health care, and social support. Ultimately, most confounding variables present in most human studies had been removed and Snowdon and his team had a wealth of information to conduct their study. One of the most precious pieces of this study were the autobiographies each woman had written upon entering the convent decades earlier. Astonishingly, they found that there was a strong positive association between idea density in early life and presence of dementia later in life. Research suggests that nuns who had lower idea density scores had an increased risk for developing dementia and had a lower life expectancy, while nuns with higher scores tended to live a long, dementia-free life. The association was so direct that Snowdon could predict which nuns might have dementia simply by reading their letters. Although the nuns were fed similar foods from the same kitchen, each had their own food preferences, which allowed for some variation in disease pathology.

Czapinski, Janusz : The economics of happiness and psychology of wealth. Using recent data from Social Diagnosis www. The main factor which differentiates the pattern of relationship is the level of income. In poor societies and individuals, income affects well-being but in wealthy societies and individuals, the direction of the relationship is reversed: well-being determines income. Money buys happiness when income is too low to satisfy basic needs, and happiness brings money when income satisfies basic needs. Ahuvia A. A theoretical conjecture on the relationship between consumtion, culture and subjective well-being at the national level.
Positive emotions in early life and longevity: findings from the nun study.
The Nun Study of Aging and Alzheimer's Disease is a continuing longitudinal study , begun in , to examine the onset of Alzheimer's disease. In , with Snowdon's retirement, the study returned to the University of Minnesota. Similar environmental influences and general lifestyles among the participants make the nuns an ideal population to study, and although it is ongoing it has yielded several findings. A few of the major findings from the nun study derived from archived manuscripts assessed by Snowdon. Among these archives were several of the sister's autobiographies written just before they took their vows.
Коммандер Тревор Стратмор - ее наставник и покровитель. Сьюзан многим ему обязана; потратить день на то, чтобы исполнить его поручение, - это самое меньшее, что он мог для нее сделать. К сожалению, утром все сложилось не так, как он планировал.
