ABSTRACT

This study investigates the role of values in developing the Happiness emotion during the early adulthood. A group of 160 university students from Germany and India were selected for this purpose. The Happiness scale developed by Bharadwaj and Das, (2017) was used for determination of the eudemonic happiness. It is discerned that 41% students of India fall in the category of high Happiness (eudemonic), whereas only 12% of students of Germany falls in high happiness (eudemonic) category. χ2 = 28.429, df = 2, significant at 0.01 level of confidence. The results reveal that values like humanity, attachment, self- control, discipline, unselfishness, lovable behavior, faith in religious values, social work, doing work on the inner voice, and no place for ego are highly significant for eudemonic happiness.
