Does money bring happiness? This is according to a study by the National Academy of Sciences

Is popular speech giving real money? Although the majority opinion in positive psychology seems to be true, it is true it is also with nuances.

A study conducted in 2010 by Princeton University reflects this general consensus, stating that starting with an income of $75,000 a year (The US economy must be taken into account) the bottom level of happinessdespite the fact that the product increases.

But research done by the University of Pennsylvania in 2021 contradicts the prediction. For he did it happiness grows with income and does not stagnateabove the ceiling of $75,000 per year. For this reason, Daniel Kahneman and Matthew Killingsworth, each responsible for the work, decided to come to light with Barbara Ann Mellers (also from the University of Pennsylvania). if there really is a limit in a direct proportional relationship between both sizes.

In general there is no method

This new study seems to indicate that in most people there is no defined method. Participants indicated their satisfaction with their assessment; and when it conveniently exceeds $75,000 a year.

However, researchers have found that happiness generally only drives (as income continues to rise) above $100,000; but these are those who were previously unhappy.

And so it seems that money brings joy and pleasure into human life. but its effect will be different in each individual. This shows a psychological study, for those who have other needs besides financialjust go to the aforementioned place to check the stuffing.

And to be very happy

First, those responsible for the study showed that the 2010 study showed a ‘plateau’ in happiness, while the 2021 study did not. For Kahneman, this met with concrete flattery between $60,000 and $90,000 annually, so the $75,000 figure was the midpoint. In the most recent case, however, researchers looked at differences above and below $100,000 per year. In addition, taking into account the effects of inflationwhich marks the major differences between the 2010 work and the two later ones.

Then, looking at a reduction in misery and not an increase in happiness, all the research agrees higher income is more important than lower dissatisfaction. And going further, looking at the profiles of those who get bigger goods with fuller pockets. He answered: almost allhowever, levels of happiness begin to stabilize somewhat around the $500,000 annual threshold (although a few participants exceeded it).

In addition, the happiest 30% of the population does not have any reason for flatterysteady and even accelerated growth at certain times, starting at $100,000. As for himself, an unfortunate segment (From 15% to 20% of them asked) shows the deepest regionswhich, indeed, though they experienced a diminution of unhappiness with their higher incomes; the change stopped close to $100,000 a year.

What matters more than money?

Finally, the researchers wanted to clarify these correlations They are cheap to the general level of satisfaction. To the fourth we proceed as follows. It seems that money somehow makes happiness. But he cannot do this, as much as one wishes.

“The effect of the increase in productivity is approximately fourfold” for a very similar reason by the carerdouble marriage, and more or less the same as the weekend. It is also at least three times less powerful than the effect that causes a headache”, explains the latest study.

Even after this (generally yes, but with some nuances), this research is concluded to be much more satisfactory identify with those places that bring happiness (Such as a relationship, hobbies, or life path) and focus on them.
