Life Satisfaction Metric

No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.
Denis Waitley

I asked ChatGPT for a measurement for how well a person is living their life and this is what ChatGPT produced.

A common Likert scale for measuring happiness is the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS), which is a 5-point scale ranging from “strongly disagree” to “strongly agree.” The SWLS measures global life satisfaction, which is a broad and stable aspect of happiness that reflects a person’s overall evaluation of their life.

The five items in the SWLS are:

1. In most ways, my life is close to my ideal.
2. The conditions of my life are excellent.
3. I am satisfied with my life.
4. So far, I have gotten the important things I want in life.
5. If I could live my life over, I would change almost nothing.

Participants are asked to rate their agreement with each item on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being “strongly disagree” and 5 being “strongly agree.” The scores for the five items are then added up to give an overall satisfaction with life score, with higher scores indicating greater life satisfaction or happiness.
