    This makes sense of several consistent but puzzling findings: that people believe they will be more happy in the future than they are now, but in fact seldom are; that societies don't get happier as they get richer; and that people are consistently wrong about the impact of future life events on their happiness.

    When people say they are happy with their lives, they do not usually mean that they are literally joyful, or experiencing pleasure, all of the time. They mean that, upon reflection on the balance sheet of pleasure and pains, they feel the balance to be reasonably positive over the long term.

    An autotelic person: needs few material possessions and little entertainment, comfort, power or fame, because so much of what he or she does is alreadly rewarding.... they are less dependent on external rewards that keep others motivated to go on with a life composed of dull and meaningless routines. They are more autonomous and independent, because they cannot be easily manipulated with threats or rewards from the outside. at the same time, they are more involved with everything around them because they are fully immersed in the current of life.

    Importantly, when we think about our future happiness we often fail to predict our own adaptation. One side-effect of adaptation is the so-called endowment effect, where we think it would be really hard to get long without something we now have, forgetting that we got along quite fine without it for years.

    great unhappiness in life is often a result of thinking about things in the wrong way rather than objective circumstances; failling to discount other reasons for moods, aking the wrong comparison, or dwelling on the past in the wrong way.

    If you can find alternative ways of being in control of your life, then you can be just as happy even if your income is low.

    The feeling of autonomy, of being able to choose what happens next in life, is also related to health.

    Since it was impossible to know inherently what the optimal behaviour in local conditions would be, we evolved a psychology of looking at those around us who seemed to be doing best, and trying to do even better than them. This leads to competition very much like that observed between trees in tropical forests.
