  The experiment involves identifying your personal strengths using an online questionnaire, and then using some of these strengths in new and different ways for one week, to see if this has any effect on how you feel. In similar studies done in the past, people became happier and less depressed when doing this, and I expect the same to happen in this experiment. You will be sent all the instructions and all the questionnaires you need by email, which you will complete and email back to me. Upon completion of the experiment in 1 week, you will be entered into a prize draw to win £30. What you are required to commit to: 1. Complete some questionnaires taking around 1 hour 2. Use your personal strengths in different ways over a period of 1 week (full instructions will be given for this) 3. Complete some questionnaires at the end of the 1 week period, taking around 20 minutes 4. Complete some follow up questionnaires in 1 month, taking 10-15 minutes What you will gain: 1. You will be entered into a prize draw to win £30 2. Knowledge of your personal strengths 3. In previous experiments in this area, people were found to be happier, less depressed, and experience more positive emotions If you are interested, visit
