|Positive psychology emerged at the beginning of the new millennium as a movement within psychology aimed at enhancing human strengths such as creativity, joy, flow, responsibility, and optimal performance and achievement. Most study of human behavior has focused mainly on what goes wrong in human affairs such as aggression, mental disease, failure, and so on. Positive psychology is a relatively new form of psychology that has its emphasis on the practical realization of the positive influences in oneâs life, such as positive character strengths, optimistic emotions, and constructive institutions. This theory is based on the belief that happiness is derived from various factors, both emotional and mental. Positive psychology aims to help people identify the happiness moment to moment, rather than only in retrospection.
