Masculine Experience of Happiness in New Zealand: How Young Men Consume Happiness
Masculine Experience of Happiness in New Zealand: How Young Men Consume Happiness We advance cross-disciplinary understanding of sources of happiness and the role consumption plays in personal constructions of happiness. Using auto-photography and phenomenological interviews, we studied what happiness means to young men. Our data indicate the importance of home and winning to happiness for these men. Sub-themes include home as place, home as people, and home as transcendent experience. Winning incorporates achievement, production, esteem, and superiority. Material things occurred frequently in these happiness stories. Consumption plays a strong role in creating home. The men also used tangible goods to achieve and display their winning.
