  1. One possibility: success is better measured by the quality of close relationships than by income, education, and political participation. Not saying I agree with that, but it’s certainly plausible.

    Jeremy,

    You raise good points & the possibility that different people under diferent circumstances have different optimal levels of happiness. A recent book, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Utility by father & son, Anthony Kenny & Charles Kenny nicely summarizes much of the literature about happiness from philosophy, economics, & psychology. It also introduces a trichotomy of elements of well-being, namely: contentment (happiness), welfare (material) & dignity (autonomy) that correspond to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
