So what do you have to do to find happiness? - Sunday Times - Times Online: "One thing makes a striking difference. When two American psychologists studied hundreds of students and focused on the top 10% 'very happy' people, they found they spent the least time alone and the most time socialising. Psychologists know that increasing the number of social contacts a miserable person has is the best way of cheering them up. When Jean-Paul Sartre wrote 'hell is other people', the arch-pessimist of existentialist angst was wrong."
