Abstract

The study of the positive aspects of human life such as love, happiness or wisdom has a relevant role in psychological research, especially to exploit the innate human potential. The objective of this research is to determine the relationship between the levels of wisdom and happiness in a sample of secondary school teachers in Ecuador. Using a post-positivist paradigm, a descriptive, gender-comparative, correlational and cross-sectional methodology was used by means of the three-dimensional wisdom scale and the Oxford happiness questionnaire. The study included 210 participants (70.5% female and 29.5% male), aged between 20 and 60 years, secondary school teachers. The analysis showed the presence of moderate wisdom and high-moderate happiness. There were no differences by gender in the variables of interest (p> .05). With r =,371; p.01, a low positive relationship was discovered between the variables of analysis; thus, wisdom is related to happiness, serving as a complementary component in the development of it. The findings provide significant information for the development of positive psychology.
