Gratitude is a powerful and transformative emotion that encompasses the recognition and appreciation of the positive aspects in one's life. It involves acknowledging the kindness of others and the benefits we receive, creating a sense of connection and well-being.

Practicing gratitude can lead to numerous psychological and physical benefits, including improved mental health, enhanced relationships and greater overall happiness. By focusing on what we are thankful for, we shift our attention away from negative thoughts and develop a more positive outlook on life.

The Gratitude Questionnaire was developed to scientifically assess the tendency to experience gratitude, as well as to measure individual differences in the proneness to feel and express gratitude in daily life. The scale consists of six statements that assess various dimensions of gratitude—such as the extent to which individuals recognize the good in their lives, their appreciation for others and their overall sense of thankfulness—allowing respondents to gain insight into their own grateful disposition.

Step 1: Rate the following statements based on how much you agree with them on a scale of strongly disagree to strongly agree.

Step 2: Enter your age, gender, region, and first name so we can provide you with a detailed report that compares your test scores to people similar to you.

Step 3: Check to make sure you've provided answers to all of the statements/questions above. Once you've done that, click the button below to send your responses to Awake Therapy's Lead Psychologist, Mark Travers, Ph.D. He will provide you with an overview of how you scored relative to others (all answers are anonymized and confidential to protect users' privacy). He can also answer any follow-up questions you may have.
