Drawing out the Satisficer from the Maximizer
How a full glass is sketched by a person is used as an identification of a maximizer/satisficer-type personality. There is evidence that students who interpret the “full glass” description as, in fact, a glass that is filled up to the brim as the maximizer-types and those who draw their glass just filled below the brim as the satisficer-types. Analysis of self-reported subjective well-being indicates that the satisficer-types enjoy higher school domain satisfaction than the maximizer-types.
