The positivity ratio is something I share will all my clients and audiences. In fact, it really underpins a lot of the work I do. The term Flourishing describes an individual that is developing rapidly and successfully, someone who is living with meaning, purpose, a sense of vitality and a high level of subjective well-being (that’s happiness to you & I). Barbara Fredrickson developed the positivity ratio as a way to determine weather you are actually flourishing of floundering.
Fredrickson discovered that when you experience a ratio of 3 positive emotions to every 1 negative emotion then you are likely to be in a state of flourishing. This is an important finding as we now have the ability to test and find the point at which flourishing is likely to occur. You can test your positivity ratio is a few minutes below.
