The Positivity Test (PT) is a self-report questionnaire for the assessment of positive attitude. It explores how people view themselves, their future, their life, and their general trust in others.

The PT assesses positivity by presenting a series of statements reflecting three positive constructs:

  1. Self-esteem captures the individual’s general opinion of their self-worth as a person.
  2. Optimism captures individual expectations regarding the future.
  3. Satisfaction with life reflects the individual’s expression of a very general evaluation of their existence.

The PT is a useful tool for businesses, as evidence links positivity to job performance. It can also be used by psychologists as a predictor for mood changes or disorders such as depression. Cross-cultural studies have shown that it is equally appropriate for people from different cultural backgrounds.
