Rock solid data


Although there are fluctuations, which are normal and expected, the data are revealing an undeniable downward trend in the index of satisfaction (IS) over time. However, the meaning of this finding is open to interpretation when the definition of IS is taken into account.

index of satisfaction = optimism / happiness

Since increased levels of both optimism and happiness are good, the long-term consequences of an overall decrease in IS are hard to predict at the moment.

Next update.

I am trying not to be sedimental, but your commentary on this is stone-cold Aydin. I admit there is a rocky road to transverse before this subject will be fully explored. Your ideas will rock the scientific community that is for shore. You are at the pinnacle of your endeavors!
