    In what kind of environment, when is it, where is the environment, with who and how is the situation in that time? O.o

    There is a lot of stuff to see before one can say "what type is the happiest?".

    @Hardstyler : Agree!!

    I'd say the most carefree and happy type is probably either an ENFJ or an ENFP.

    If I'm being totally honest instinctively my first thoughts were "ENFP. Wait no ENFP and ENFJ. And definitely not ISFP."

    But ummm yeah pretty much if you're healthy (mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, etc.) then you're happy no matter what type you are.

    I think there's a problem with the way people perceive other people's happiness since we do not really get excited over the same thing or use exactly the same language (it is not entirely linked to personality in MBTI terms). It is very easy to mistake a whole category of people for being mostly depressed just because they look reserved and don't really smile and think that other are obviously happier in any case because they are always smiling and talking loudly to everyone.

    It is also a cultural things, you have different expectations when it comes to people showing their happiness depending on your culture. And of course, there are people who have a quiet happiness when others have a loud happiness, even inside their own head, it does not mean that one is happier than the other but one will/might think they are happier or be perceived as happier.

    In the end, it has probably more to do with circumstances, education, dreams, achievement, what you actually live AND of course, mental health, genetic predispositions, etc.

    I do not think that being carefree leads necessary to happiness, but it is not something easy to define. I think that it may depend on what you are aiming at in life, your personal goals, your skills, what you value and how you manage to be close to what you value. Perhaps, it has something to do with the way you look at life in general, do you count your blessings or focus on the negative aspects of life? We tend to do both, depending on the circumstances.

    Happiness is unstable.

    I'm really happy and stress free. But others don't interpret my happiness as such, so I am unfairly discounted.

    I am happy to wake up everyday.
    I am happy that I am me.
    I am happy that my life is going smoothly.
    I am happy when life throws me curveballs because I can strategize my way through the situation, and learn from it.
    I am happy, I suppose, because I do not worry about others.
    I am happy that life is good... pretty much.

    And my life, others say, has been super sucky and worthy of a autobiography. :P

    Like others have said, it depends on the individual! It can be any type, there is no way to tell.

    But I suppose people mistake "happy" for "carefree". I think the most carefree type is ESTP, but for example I'm an INTJ and although I find aspects of life challenging, I find that makes them more rewarding and I am an extremely happy person ^_^

    I don't know. My first reaction to the question was ESFP and ENFJ. I agree with others though that happiness does not equal carefree. I guess no one's first reaction is any introverted type? That would be interesting. I don't know why, because I am sure it's not entirely accurate, but when you put an "I" instead of an "E" in the type, for example ISFP rather than ESFP or INFJ instead of ENFJ, the type suddenly becomes a very serious type. That is completely stereotypical and wholly inaccurate but the connotation is there.

    Anyways, types in the order that spring to my head when I think "happy":


    There is no rhyme or reason for any one of these.
