时间和金钱,哪一个让你更有幸福感?

上传时间:2016-10-11  来源:伯克利教育官网

Given the choice between more time or more money, which would you pick? For a beach vacation, you might pay more for a direct flight to gain a couple of extra hours getting sand between your toes. On the other hand, you might take a better-paying job that requires late nights at the office.

在拥有更多时间或更多金钱之间,你会选哪个?去海滩度假时,你可能花更多钱乘坐直达航班,让自己获得额外的时间享受细沙在脚趾间穿过的感觉。另一方面,你可能会接受一份需要在办公室深夜加班的高薪工作。

Which would lead to greater happiness — the money or the time?

哪一个会带来更大的幸福感——金钱还是时间?

We put this question to more than 4,000 Americans of different ages, income levels, occupations and marital and parental status. We found that most people valued money more than time.

我们把这个问题交给4000多名美国人,他们的年龄、收入水平、职业、婚姻和育儿状况各不相同。我们发现多数人更珍视金钱,而非时间。

Is money the right choice? We had also asked our survey respondents to report their level of happiness and life satisfaction. We found that the people who chose time were on average statistically happier and more satisfied with life than the people who chose money.

金钱是正确的选择吗?我们还让受访者报告了他们的幸福程度和生活满意度。我们发现,通常情况下,选择时间的人比选择金钱的人更幸福且对生活更满意。

So money may turn out to be the wrong choice. But maybe this result simply shows that the people who chose money are more financially constrained and therefore less happy.

所以,金钱可能是错误的选择。但是,这个结果可能仅仅说明,选择金钱的人在财政上受到更多限制,因此没有那么幸福。

We found that even when we held constant the amount of leisure time and money respondents had, the people who chose time over money were still happier.

我们发现即使我们让受访者的闲暇时间和金钱保持恒定,选择时间的人依然比选择金钱的人更幸福。

Our research isn’t claiming that having more of either resource is better or worse for happiness. But our research does show that the value individuals place on these resources relative to each other is predictive of happiness.

我们的研究不能说明,拥有哪一种资源更多,对幸福感更好还是更坏。但是,我们的研究确实表明,个人对这两种彼此相关的资源的珍视程度,可以预测幸福感。

In our pursuit of happiness, we are constantly faced with decisions both big and small that force us to pit time against money. Of course, sometimes it’s not a choice at all: We must earn that extra pay to make ends meet. But when it is a choice, the likelihood of choosing more time over more money — despite the widespread tendency to do the opposite — is a good sign you’ll enjoy the happiness you seek.

在我们追求幸福感的过程中,我们不断面临大大小小的抉择,迫使我们在时间和金钱中做出选择。当然,有时这并不是一个选择:我们必须赚更多钱来维持生计。但是当它是一个选择时,选择更多时间而非更多金钱的可能性——尽管普遍的趋势恰恰相反——是一个好的迹象,你会享受你追求的幸福感。
