The Maximization Trait


Alex Belli and Fran?ois Carrillat seek unpublished studies on the maximization trait and its effect on well-being

Alex Belli and François Carrillat from University of Technology Sydney are conducting a meta-analysis on the maximization trait, and are seeking any unpublished studies in the domain. Specifically we seek work on the trait’s effect on any dimension of well being, i. e. happiness, satisfaction/regret (with purchases, relationships, life), affect and depression. Outcomes might fall under subjective well-being (e.g. happiness, affect, satisfaction), psychological well-being (e.g. self-actualisation and flourishing) or medical well-being (e.g. any mental or somatic illness).

Studies can be sent to
