Abstract:The purpose of positive psychology is to stimulate optimal mental health or ‘flourishing’. Psychological interventions are proven to be successful in many ways on the internet. Positive psychology interventions (PPI’s) need to be implemented in more efficient ways, either. Therefore this study investigated whether participation in a short web-based PPI can optimize the affect of mentally healthy persons. Furthermore research was done to know whether neuroticisme has an influence on the effects. 44 Germans took part in the ‘three good things’ PPI for 7 days. The 29 women and 15 men were on average 41,7 years old and 59% of them were highly educated. Effects were measured by comparing pre- and post-test with the PANAS affect questionnaire. Neuroticisme was measured with the BFI-10 personality questionnaire in advance. T-tests show that positive affect does not increase. However negative affect decreases significantly. The PROCESS regression analysis shows that the personality trait neuroticism is not a moderator of the results of the intervention. With this study, first steps towards effective interventions which can improve mental health and can reduce psychopathological problems preventively are taken.
