The Creation of the Blissometer Score
The Blissometer score is a new way to determine how blissful you feel on any given day. Using Ed Diener's Flourishing and Subjective Well-Being Scale, the Blissometer score combines these two scales with our Blissometer Journey framework to create something completely different.
The Flourishing Scale is a brief 8-item summary measure of the respondent's self-perceived success in critical areas such as relationships, self-esteem, purpose, and optimism. The scale provides a single psychological well-being score.
The Subjective Well-Being Scale measures global cognitive judgments of satisfaction with one's life.
The inputs from these two scales are then algorithmically adjusted to help people see where they could go to improve their level of blissfulness - based on what they're already doing day in and day out.
As you engage with the Blissometer Experiences, we encourage you to get your Blissometer Score again to chart your own path to Bliss.
