“According to K. Magnus and his colleagues, happiness goes hand in hand with the capacity to assert oneself with extroversion and empathy—happy people are generally open to the world.
.
They believe that an individual can exert control over herself and her life, while unhappy people tend to believe themselves to be destiny’s playthings.
.
It would seem that the more an individual is capable of controlling her environment, the happier she is.
.
It is interesting to note that in everyday life, extroverts experience more positive events than introverts, and
neurotics have more negative experiences than stable people.
.
A person may be on a “streak” of bad luck or feel herself to be a magnet for problems, but it is important to keep in mind that it is ultimately our own disposition—extroverted or neurotic, optimistic or pessimistic, self-centered or altruistic—that impels us into the same situation again and again.
.
An open-minded person is more skilled at battling through difficult circumstances, whereas someone who is ill at ease feels increased anxiety that is usually reflected in affective and familial issues and social failure.”
