Scientists have determined that happiness increases after the age of 46

He is very curious and loves adventure, either or both intellectual and physical. When he gets interested in something, he can become extremely focused on it.

People tend to admire him for his knowledge and innovativeness. He derives intimacy from doing things with friends or a partner.

He is drawn to those who can balance his highly independent and tough-minded spirit--those who are novelty seeking, yet compassionate, verbal, intuitive, trusting, flexible and emotionally expressive.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • People should behave according to established standards of proper conduct
  • I pursue intellectual topics thoroughly and regularly

in his own words...

Yes, it's true (at least if you believe The Economist). Real live clipboard-carrying scientists, wearing white lab coats and safety goggles, have determined that once the average adult reaches the age of 46, his/her happiness increases. (Too bad for all of you under the age of 46.) A pleasant way to think about middle age, isn't it? You're not growing older, you're growing happier. So -- How about we share a bit of the happiness that comes with turning 47, 48, 49, . . . ? We might be able to work something out if we share the following: We are open and honest (almost to a fault). We are tolerant and forgiving and respectful of one another (despite our faults). We are tolerant and forgiving and respectful of others (despite their faults, which are always substantially greater than ours :). We are curious about the world. We seek new challenges (mental and physical) and experiences. If we do share some of the above, here's how I imagine our partnership would work: You take me to a talk about some obscure painter, I take you to a talk by some obscure critic. You take me to the ballet, I take you to a baseball game (not to gender stereotype, it's just an example). You teach me something about your favorite author and I teach you something about mine. You insipire me to travel with you to Asia (or wherever is your next vacation spot), I inspire you to travel with me to some obscure part of Italy (though I'm not sure anyone NEEDS to be inspired to travel to Italy, which is almost always my next vacation spot). We take in obscure movies and less obscure plays. You kick my butt at tennis, I kick yours on the bike trail. Put more simply: you share with me what excites/interests/brings joy to you and I share the same with you (with luck, there'll be some overlap, but the differences will make it all the more interesting) A couple final details. Though none of my pics show me in a tie, rest assured: I do own suits and ties (plus a tux) and am more than happy to w
