What Makes You Happy?

Skout conducted a survey about what makes people happy, and WJXT news in Jacksonville, Florida shared the results with everyone.

Secret to a happier day might be meeting someone new.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - According to a new survey by Skout, the secret to a happier day might be meeting someone new.

  • 64% of people who are "very happy" say they meet someone new everyday.
  • 23% of people say they are more productive at work after talking to someone they've just met.
  • 60% of people are more flattered by a compliment they receive from a stranger versus someone they know.

Men and women say when they meet someone new, they are in a better mood for the rest of the day.

Unhappy people say they meet someone new only once a month.

The survey had to ask about Pharrell William's song "Happy," and 62% of people say the song does make them feel happier.

The consensus? I's time to blast some Pharrell, hop on the Skout app, and start getting happy!
