Self report on single question: Think about the last year as a whole. What kind of moods have you been mostly during the year? What kind of mood is typical of you in the day to day situations? 100 EXTREMELY GOOD MOOD: I am almost always happy and in a good mood. I am practically never in a bad mood. 90 VERY GOOD MOOD: I am mostly in a good mood. It is really rare that I would feel blue. If I would occasionally be in a bad mood it usually goes away in a moment. 80 GOOD MOOD: My mood is usually bright and positive. I do know what being in a bad mood or feeling grumpy is like. Nevertheless, it is so rare I would actually feel like that, that it does not have a real significance in my life. 70 RATHER GOOD MOOD: Mostly my mood is positive. I have a slight tendency to be gloomy but it does not bother me in general. I am at peace with the situation. 60 Even if negative mood is experienced to an extent there is still more days spent in positive mood. Gloominess or being in a bad mood does not bother my life markedly. My mood is more positive than negative. 50 MODERATE MOOD: At times I am in a really bad mood but there are times when I feel more positive. My mood is not so good but it is not completely bad either. 40 I am prone to be in a bad mood but I feel I can handle it. Moodiness does not affect the way I accomplish my daily tasks or do my work. 30 RATHER BAD MOOD: I can take care of my daily routines and work especially but it is difficult to get rid of the gloomy thoughts. There are positive moments at times but during the last year I have been prone to be in a bad mood. 20 BAD MOOD: It is difficult for me to get rid of the bad mood. I feel gloomy. There are slight moments when I feel that I could get rid of it but it comes back. I can do my daily routines and work only by forcing myself to it. I am mostly in a bad mood. 10 I am strongly prone to bad mood and gloominess. I am not totally slain but very close. Everything around me looks hopeless and dark. I can barely take care of my daily routines. 0 EXTREMELY BAD MOOD: I am in an extremely bad mood constantly. I feel gloomy and depressed. It feels so bad that it is as if I would be falling in a bottomless pit. I am not interested in anything and I can not take care of my daily routines.

Selfreport in focused interview: Content analysis of interview records by independent judges. Interviews focused on the extent to which S feels he has achieved his goals in life, whatever those goals might be; feels he has succeeded in accomplishing what he regards as important. High ratings go, for instance, to S who says, "I've managed to keep out of jail" just as to R who says, "I managed to send all my kids through college". Low ratings go to R who feels he's missed most of his opportunities, or who says, "I've never been suited to my work", or "I always wanted to be a doctor, but never could get there". Also to R who wants most to be "loved", but instead feels merely "approved". (Expressions of regret for lack of education are not counted because they are stereotyped responses among all but the group of highest social status). Rating options: 5 Feels he has accomplished what he wanted to do. He has achieved or is achieving his own personal goals. 4 Regrets somewhat the chances missed during life. "Maybe I could have made more of certain opportunities". Nevertheless, feels that he has been fairly successful in accomplishing what he wanted to do in life. 3 Has a fifty-fifty record of opportunities taken and opportunities missed. Would have done some things differently, if he had his life to live over. Might have gotten more education. 2 Has regrets about major opportunities missed but feels good about accomplishment in one area (may be his avocation). 1 Feels he has missed most opportunities in life.

There is so much more positive things in my life than negative that I feel rather satisfied. 60 There are both positive and negative things in my life at the same time. When I consider life as a whole the positive and satisfying things seem to outweigh the negative things and I tend to feel contented. 50 BOTH CONTENTED AND DISCONTENTED: Both contentment and discontentment are present and in a way balanced in my life. There are some things that I am satisfied with and some things that are a source of constant discontentment. 40 I am prone to be in discontented with my life as a whole.

The satisfying things in my life do not affect much how I feel. 10 VERY DISCONTENTED: I am very discontented with my life. It is difficult to even find things that I would be satisfied of in my life. If I think of something that brings a sense of contentment it is easily replaced by many negative things. 0 EXTREMELY DISCONTENTED: I am extremely discontented with my life.

Selfreport in focused interview: Content analysis of interview records by two independent judges: High ratings for R who expresses happy, optimistic attitudes and mood; who uses spontaneous positively-toned affective terms for people and things; who takes pleasure from life and expresses it. Low ratings for depression, 'feel blue and lonely'; for feelings of bitterness; for frequent irritability and anger. (Here not only R's verbalized attitudes in the interview were considered, but interferences were made from all the knowledge of his inter-personal relationships, how others react towards him). Rating options 5 'This is the best time of my life'. Is nearly always cheerful, optimistic. Cheerfulness may seem unrealistic to an observer, but R shows no sign of 'putting up a bold front'. 4 Gets pleasure out of life, knows it and shows it. There is enough restraint to seem appropriate to a younger person Usually feels positive affect. Optimistic. 3 Seems to move along on an even temperamental keel. Any depressions are neutralized by positive mood swings. Generally neutral-to-positive affect. May show some irritability 2 Wants things quiet and peaceful. General neutral-to- negative affect. Some depression. 1 Pessimistic, complaining, bitter. Complaints of being lonely. Feels 'blue' a good deal of the time. May get angry when in contact with people.

None will be likely to fit exactly." 3 Finding life rather disappointing and disillusioning, cmfortable in many ways, moderately successful, but far from realizing the hopes of youth. 9 Cheerful, gay spirits most of the time. Occasionally bothered by something but can usually laugh it off. 8 Calm, quiet sort of satisfaction. Life has been pretty good. Not everything one desires comes, of course, but on the whole there is much for which to be serenely thankful. 5 Ups and downs, now happy about things, now depressed. About balanced in the long run. 1 Life often seems so worthless that there is little to keep one going. Nothing matters very much, there has been so much of hurt that laughter would be empty mockery. 2 Keeping a brave front, others think everything is all right. Inside life seems rather black. 1 Usually sad, weep readily, smile seldom. 11 Radiant, find every day full of interest, amusing things, and worthwhile things. 3 Seriously hurt by certain things, for which the good aspects of life cannot quite make up. 5 Quite objective. Like some experiences, dislike others. Not aware of any prevalent happiness or unhappiness.
