What Is Positive Psychology, and What Is It Not?

In less than a decade, positive psychology has caught the attention not only of the academic community but also the general public. I just did a google search for “positive psychology’ and found 419,000+ hits. That is obviously impressive, although keeping all of us positive psychologists humble is that my searches for the “Olsen twins” and “Britney Spears” produced 6,390,000+ and 113,000,000+ hits, respectively.
