Beliefs About Well-Being Scale

Different people have different beliefs about what factors are involved in the experience of high well-being and ‘the good life’.

In this questionnaire, people are asked about their beliefs about well-being by indicating the degree to which they believe that certain aspects are a necessary and required aspect of the experience of high well-being and living the good life. It is based on a study that showed that people’s beliefs about wellbeing can affect their actual wellbeing.
