    Whom amongst the following are more happy ??
    "Satisfied people " or "Unsatisfied people"

    Okay, now before you answer , go through following :

    "Satisfied People" :: They are content with what they have and the quest inside them might not be that fierce. They have a potential tendency to go on the path of stagnation yet they have a balance somewhere.

    "Unsatisfied People" : The quest in them is alive always . They are less likely to go on the path of stagnation yet restless.

      I think that a person can only find true happiness within themselves, just as the commenter below stated. It is within us all, if we look deep down inside and find it and if we truly accept who we are. 

      I do also think that many people have a quest inside of them (whether they be considered satisfied or unsatisfied). I know the many days I wish that I could just take an adventure somewhere. While I am "satisfied" with what life has blessed me with, I have a bucket list.

      Employed people :
           Stressed, paranoid, secure, eager to convince themselves that they are happy, buy stuff they don't need to satisfy others who don't really care.
      Unemployed people:
           Stressed, paranoid, insecure, eager to convince others that they are valuable to the world and wish they could buy stuff they don't need, but get ignored by employers who think that as long as these guys have been unemployed they must have done crystal meth, and that is why they are unemployed.

        I agree but not totally ... no offence !!! Employed people might need to convince others at many points even though they are employed...." satisfying others" is a matter of perception , considering what level do I assume myself on when I see others ....

        Unemployed : probably would be stressed but are not always judged  as mentioned ..... That judgement might depend on individual's outlook!!

    Satisfaction is something our ego makes us think is pleasing to us. However, satisfaction with anything is short-lived, and we soon desire something...more. This ends up in an endless cycle of dis-satisfaction. Therefore, such happiness is an elusive beast.

    The only true happiness comes from within you. It's been there all along. Unfortunately, your ego gets in the way, every time. Once you stop listening to your ego, you can think from your heart. Stop being judgemental..lose those negative thoughts. The well-being of others should always come before your own. Helping people is its own reward, especially when you're not expecting anything in return.
