Research: People with a lot of Self-Control are Happier

As Glenn Reynolds notes: "Funny, because for the past 50 years or so we’ve been casting self-control as the enemy of happiness" - at theAtlantic:

Results: The more self-control people reported having, the more satisfied they reported being with their lives. And contrary to what the researchers were expecting, people with more self-control were also more likely to be happy in the short-term. In fact, when they further analyzed the data, they found that such people's increased happiness to a large extent accounted for the increased life satisfaction.
