A New Kind of Problem

At dinner the other night we were talking about a relatively new field of study, positive psychology.  This emerging science focuses on people's strengths and virtues, on how to live more fulfilling lives and interact more effectively in society, rather than simply treating mental illness.  You might say it's the study of happiness.

Tommy said, "So a man goes to the psychiatrist and says, 'Doctor, I think there's something right with me, but I can't figure out what it is!'"
