       What You Didn't Know about Money and Happiness你不了解金钱和幸福

        Over the past 15 years,researchers have studied the connection between money and happiness. Their findings shatter many misconceptions. Here are five of the most surprising results.     1. Everyone needs a few luxuries to be happy.     A six-figure income affords a family many pleasures-- a more luxurious home, perhaps a trip to Disneyland or a fancier car. But do such things make you happier?     Pleasure is not the same as happiness. Pleasure is a temporary release.  Happiness comes from experiences in which one's mental and emotional energies are invested.     Just as happy families value pleasures that involve personal effort, so they value possessions that have personal meaning, like Grandma's wedding ring. Unhappy people,however, are more likely to prize possessions because of their cost or utility, a car that handles well or an expensive necklace.     2. Happiness is a permanent vacation.     Would you quit your job if you didn' t need the money?Many Americans said quitting work was an important reason to be rich. Yet researchers find that work is one of life's chief satisfactions for people.     A job, studies show, is more than a paycheck. Doing something well can increase confidence and self-worth.     3. A big raise would make you happy.     If jobs are so important, wouldn't salary size be a gauge of job satisfaction? Americans think so. A survey found that almost 70 percent of the respondents said they would be happier if their families had twice as much household income. Yet studies show that job satisfaction comes less from how much people earn than from the challenge of their jobs and the control they are able to exert. Work that doesn't engage a person will never seem rewarding, no matter how lucrative it becomes.     4. Nothing comforts like cash.     In times of crisis--a debilitating illness or loss of one's home--money can come in pretty handy. But for all its benefits, it cannot fortify you against the inevitable pain and sadness that follow the crisis. For that, researchers say, you need close friendships. "Human beings are hard-wired to be social animals". "They're not built to handle things alone."     5. Happiness and wealth aren't mutually exclusive.     It's possible to have both--or neither. But most believe that those who have happiness, in the long run, have more.Even author Oscar Wilde agreed: "Ordinary riches can be stolen from a man. Real riches cannot. In the treasury house of your soul, there are infinitely precious things that may notbe taken from you."
你不了解金钱和幸福

        在过去15年中,研究人员研究了金钱与幸福之间的联系。他们的发现破坏了许多误解。这里有五个最令人惊讶的结果。每个人都需要几分奢侈才能幸福。一个六位数的收入为家庭提供了许多乐趣 - 一个更豪华的家,也许是去迪斯尼乐园或一个鸽友的旅程。但这样做会让你更快乐吗?快乐与幸福不一样。快乐是一个暂时的释放。幸福来自于投入精神和情感能量的经验。正如幸福的家庭珍惜涉及个人努力的快乐,所以他们珍视具有个人意义的财富,如奶奶的结婚戒指。然而,不快乐的人因为成本或效用而更有可能获得财产,一辆处理好的汽车或一条昂贵的项链。幸福是一个永久的假期。如果你不需要钱,你会放弃你的工作吗?许多美国人说退出工作是富有的重要原因。然而研究人员发现,工作是人们对人的首要满足之一。一份工作,研究表明,不仅仅是一个薪水。做好事情可以增加信心和自我价值。一个大的筹码会让你开心。如果工作如此重要,薪资水平不会成为工作满意度的衡量标准?美国人这样想。一项调查发现,近70%的受访者表示如果家庭的家庭收入是家庭收入的两倍,他们会更快乐。然而,研究表明,工作满意度来自于多少人获得的收入远远低于他们的工作挑战和他们能够施加的控制。不参与任何人的工作永远不会有回报,无论它有多么有利可图。没有任何舒适的现金。在危机时期 - 一个虚弱的疾病或家中的损失 - 钱可以非常方便。但是,对于所有的好处,它不能强化你抵制危机之后不可避免的痛苦和悲伤。为此,研究人员说,你需要密切的友谊。 “人类是有线的,是社会动物”。 “他们不是独自处理事情的。幸福与财富不是互相排斥的。有可能有两个或两个。但大多数人认为,长远来说,有幸福的人有更多的爱好者,因此,奥斯卡王尔德同意:“普通的财富可以从一个男人身上偷走,真正的财富是不可能的,在你灵魂的财宝屋里,有无限珍贵的东西这可能不会从你身上夺走。“
