The Times of India, Daily Mail, PsychCentral, Aug. 31 -- A study has found that happy people who are less outgoing, relied less on partying and drinking to be happy and more on connections with family and friends or cognitive strategies, such as positive thinking. An Indiana University study compared strategies used by extroverted college students and their less socially inclined peers to reach to the conclusion. "You don't have to go out and party to be happy. That's the thing students feel they need to do, particularly when they're new to campus," said Bernardo J. Carducci, director of the Shyness Research Institute at Indiana University Southeast. Full story. Full story 2. Full story 3.
