Want to know the key to life satisfaction? Just ask Ms Franklin: R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Forget money, a sunny disposition comes from being respected and accepted by friends and colleagues, according to research in Psychological Science.
"Having high standing in your local ladder leads to receiving more respect, having more influence, and being more integrated into the group's social fabric," says study co-author Cameron Anderson.

If you feel on the outer, fear not friends: there's still time to join a book club and connect.

"I was surprised at how fluid these effects were - if someone's standing in their local ladder went up or down, so did their happiness," says Anderson.

The reason is simple
"It's possible that being respected, having influence, and being socially integrated just never gets old," Anderson said.
