Brief Introduction to Well-Being and the Psychological Well-Being Test

Well-being is about the level of positive attitude we have about ourselves and its relationship with health and vitality, and with our energy or verve. It is this level of well-being which is measured by the psychological Well-Being Test here.

People with high scores on the psychological Well-Being Test tend to be insightful, open-minded and rational in their judgments of self and others. They generally feel in good physical and emotional health and are optimistic about what the future holds.

Individuals with low scores may feel unable to cope with typical life activities. These individuals may be characterized as experiencing dissatisfaction, worry and, possibly, anxiety. They tend to be concerned about health and personal problems and tend to worry about what the future holds.

Though not specifically a measure of stress, the test can be thought of in terms of measuring a state or outcome that may be related to stress. Therefore, the psychological Well-Being Test has been included within our collection of stress tests here at Real Tests Online .com.

Needless to say, the administration of a specific stress test or set of stress tests should be considered where stress, or the possibility of stress is the specific topic of interest.

Before I start the test, can you tell me more about the concept of well-being?

Yes, of course. Read on...

Let’s start with the question, “what is the definition of well-being,” followed by the question “what is the definition of psychological well-being?”


Well-Being Defined and Psychological Well-Being Defined

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) definition of well-being is, ‘the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy.’ It is a type of prosperity, though by definition not necessarily limited to economic prosperity.

The antonym (a word which has the opposite meaning) of well-being is ill-being, which is characterized by a lack of prosperity, or happiness, or health.

Well-being is an aspect of quality of life and of welfare, here focusing on physical and psychological or mental health and emotional experience, including for example joy, happiness, satisfaction, enjoyment, pleasure, affection, stress, sadness, sorrow, or anger.

More broadly, quality of life encompasses employment and wealth, the environment in which people live, work and play, education, recreation and leisure.

Within health care, the interest in quality of life is often framed in terms of how the quality of experience is negatively affected for people.

Well-being is important with regard to the realization of potential within individuals, organizations, societies and institutions.

Low levels of well-being indicate that individuals may be less able to respond to difficult circumstances or situations, to innovate, or to constructively engage with other people and the world around them.

Higher levels of well-being suggest positive experience and a capacity to flourish and thrive physically and psychologically or mentally.

The positive dimension of mental health is stressed in the World Health Organization (WHO) definition of health as contained in its constitution: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

WHO say in Mental health: a state of well-being that, “Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”

Psychological well-being is defined by psychologist Peter Gerstmann as, “a dimension of personality, or more specifically an affective state of personal experience concerning a sense of general satisfaction with one’s life, which may fluctuate over time or from situation to situation.”

It is the individual’s current level of psychological well-being that is measured by our Well-Being Test.

Psychological well-being can be a relatively changeable dimension and levels, whether high, medium or low, may be prone to quite rapid change.

Exposure to potentially stressful life events, including, for example, serial redundancy, death of a loved one, divorce or separation, crime, and a myriad other factors can change our outlook and our interpretation concerning our circumstances fairly quickly.

Our Stress Health Risk Test can help determine whether your exposure to certain life events over the past year may put you at risk from developing stress-related illnesses in the near-future.

The Well-Being Test results are valid for a period of about three months usually and are subject to change as new circumstances and challenges are faced. The psychological Well-Being Test may be taken again and as often as you wish in the future.


Recommended Reading

There exists an absolute wealth of material on the topic of well-being and its relationship with healthy living. This makes the job of narrowing down to a specific interest area tough.

Nevertheless, there are three titles I would recommend if you are interested in addressing well-being, positive attitude and health, that I think many readers may enjoy or benefit from:

The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook, The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook and The Self-Esteem Workbook are all good publications which have been very well received.

(These links take you to Amazon.com where they also have them as a download to start reading straight away on the Regular Kindle, Kindle Fire Color or free Kindle App)

The use of a professional advisor may be of benefit to some also – just ensure they are suitably qualified and experienced to address specific needs.
