State Trait Cheerfulness Inventory (STCI).


The state trait cheerfulness inventory can be either a 18, 30 or 60 item questionnaire regarding feelings and state of mind.

Items are scored on a 1-4 scale, with the total scale score calculated as a sum within the different subsections e.g. trait-cheerfulness (CH).
