"A range of social factors are in play here, says Delhey, but also individual ones. He has developed a formula for happiness based on years of research: "Having, loving, being" are the corner points of his triangle of well-being. The three factors having, loving, being can be emphasized individually, but no aspect can substitute the other entirely."
