Provoked and spontaneous judgements of life satisfaction
thesisposted on 2004-01-01, 00:00 authored by Catherine M. Croft
Reports on two studies designed to assess the making of life satisfaction judgements. Findings suggested that while life satisfaction judgements are indeed made in everyday life, such judgements are based on thinking that is limited in nature. Overall, the second study also suggested that the results typically obtained in standard life satisfaction studies may, in part, be an artifact of the methodology they employ.
