Does your life have a clear sense of purpose?
Most people have a fundamental need to seek and find their calling in life, be it through work, hobbies or volunteer activities. While philosophers have long weighed in on the subject, it has recently come under scrutiny by researchers who seek to understand the science behind human happiness and success.
Psychologist Michael Steger and his colleagues at Colorado State University created the Meaning in Life Questionnaire (MLQ) to measure the presence of meaning in our lives, as well as how much we seek to further our understanding of life’s purpose.
This article presents the MLQ, a five-minute test that will prompt you to think about these important topics, and it can serve as the foundation for discussions with your significant relationships, mentor or coach.
