행복 점수

미국 포브스 선정 400대 부자와 그린란드 에스키모인, 아프리카 마사이족 사이엔 연결되는 끈이 있다. 바로 세계에서 행복도가 가장 높은 집단이라는 거다. 미국 일리노이대 설문조사 결과 부자들과 에스키모인의 평균 행복 점수가 80점으로 같았고, 마사이족이 78점으로 바로 뒤였다. 행복의 주관적이고 상대적인 속성을 보여주는 사례다. 비교의 함정에 빠지지 않고, 충분히 만족해하며 지금의 삶을 즐기는데 에스키모인·마사이족인들 행복하지 못할 이유가 없다.

The Forbes 400, the wealthiest Americans selected by Forbes Magazine, have something in common with the Eskimos in Greenland and ⓐthe Maasai people in East Africa. ⓑThey are groups with highest happiness index in the world. According to a survey conducted by the University of Illinois in the United States, ⓒthe rich and the Eskimos ⓓshared the top with an average happiness index at 80 points. The Maasai people followed with 79 points. The study illustrates that happiness is a subjective and relative value. The Eskimos and the Maasai are not caught in the trap of comparing their lives with others, and as they are sufficiently content with their given conditions, there is no reason why they should not feel happy.

행복의 조건이 돈, 건강, 종교만은 아닐 터다. ‘행복 심리학’의 대가 에드 디너 일리노이대 교수는 ‘매우 행복한 사람’이란 논문에서 ‘관계’를 행복의 요체로 꼽았다. 222명을 대상으로 행복도를 측정해 상위 10%의 특성을 나머지 사람들과 비교한 결과다. 최고로 행복한 사람은 혼자 있는 시간이 적고, 사람들을 만나고 관계를 유지하는 데 많은 시간을 할애한다는 거다.
