EVERYONE wants a rich and fulfilling life. But some people live in poverty and do without necessities. Three local and three overseas universities conducted a survey on satisfaction by questioning 800 randomly picked youngsters aged 10 to 17.
The survey found that the fewer things one has, the less satisfied one is. The students listed 21 things as necessities and many said they did not have 14 of them. Twenty-three percent said they did not have a chance to do extracurricular activities and 14 percent did not have a place to study or do homework.
The survey also found that satisfaction levels go down as one grows older, and the fewer things you have, the more you are bullied.
