Why are some people happier than others? It is likely a major factor is genetic. Happiness genes have been found for the first time. In a study of 298,000 people.

The researchers found three genetic variants for happiness, two variants that can account for differences in symptoms of depression, and eleven locations on the human genome that could account for varying degrees of neuroticism. The genetic variants for happiness are mainly expressed in the central nervous system and the adrenal glands and pancreatic system.
