The Sharer

Your happiness comes from taking part in activites with others. You enjoy getting ready with friends before you go out, or participating in group activites - such as doing up a friend's house or helping them move. You like to feel that you belong to something and you feel this most strongly when you are taking part in a shared task or activity. Forcusing on this alone may be limiting. You may find that your happiness is too dependent on stimulation from others or that you need to have others around you in order to feel at your best. However, there are also advantages to your attitude and way of life. You express yourself well,you know how you come across to others and you are an excellent comunicator. Happiness in a gift and as far as you are concerned sharing it can only increase it.

The Achiever

You find that you are happiest when you have achieved something you have been working towards, whether it's a material or more personal goal. But it's not all about you. Happiness also comes when you have helped someone else to feel happy - for example playing with your children or watching your friends enjoy themselves at a party you've organised. You like to feel emotionally connected to people and things around you. But be careful that you don't rely too much on material things, and that you don't become dissatisfied or unhappy when you fail to achieve your goals. Recognise and celebrate the fact that your love of acheivement can be a powerful source of energy; one that can spur you into creativity.

The Artisan

You feel at your happiest when you are completely engaged in an activity that you enjoy, particularly if you find that you have a talent for it. Psychologists describe this state as 'flow'. Reading, playing music or sport, doing DIY. cooking - all of these are activities that provide a sense of flow and happiness. You take great pleasure in what you are doing and in the feeling of being totally absorbed by something that demands your skill and attention. The only risk is that preferring to focus solely on activities that you enjoy, and that require practice or dedication can mean that you don't develop other cases. In extreme cases, it can also lead to a tendency to be slightly arrogant. However, the joy of mastering something can be immensely uplifting. It nourishes you, gives you strength and enables you to transcend yourself.

The Individualist

Your happiness dervies from being slightly distanced from the world around you. You like to feel detached from your immediate surroundings, but you are not indifferent to them. In fact, your moments of happiness may come from the environment - watching a sunrise while the rest of the world is sleeping, listening to a favourite piece of music or simply becoming aware that you feel serene and happy in yourself. Your happiness depends on a mixture of being receptive to what's around you, while also feeling relaxed and distanced from life's daily grind. You like to observe the world without feeling totally immersed in it. Be careful that your love of calm and serenity doesn't turn in to a passive attitude to life, or that you don't become too distanced from life's battles. On the plus side, your type of happineess will help you develop reserves of inner peace and tolerance, which can serve as an excellent foundation from which to take on the world.
