Hey Rachel, I did some research on time perspective for a past unit and it seemed having a balanced time perspective had the strongest link with happiness i.e. being flexible in switching between perspectives based on the situation, personal resources etc. This chapter provides a critical summary of research on BTP up to 2015. Stolarski, M., Wiberg, B., & Osin, E. (2015). Assessing temporal harmony: The issue of a balanced time perspective. In Time Perspective Theory; Review, Research and Application (pp. 57-71). Springer International Publishing.
This article might also be useful for looking at the relationship of each particular dimension with mood: Stolarski, M., Matthews, G., Postek, S., Zimbardo, P. G., & Bitner, J. (2014). How we feel is a matter of time: Relationships between time perspectives and mood. Journal of Happiness Studies, 15, 809-827. doi:10.1007/s10902-013-9450-y

Hi Rachel, We have similar topics (I am doing Time perspective and relationships). I have also found research which suggests a balanced time perspective is a strong predictor of well-being and happiness, however, what a balanced time perspective actually is seems unclear as there has been contradictory findings. This book chapter gives quite a bit of info on balanced time perspective and its relationship with well-being: Boniwell, I., & Zimbardo, P. G. (2015). Balancing time perspective in pursuit of optimal functioning. Positive Psychology in Practice: Promoting Human Flourishing in Work, Health, Education, and Everyday Life, Second Edition, 223-236.] Another good book which lots of info on time perspective is: Zimbardo, P., & Boyd, J. (2008). The time paradox: The new psychology of time that will change your life. New York, NY: Free Press. Its available in the UC library (BF 468. Z56) for 7 days. Hope this helps. Good luck with your chapter.--WJDHR (discuss • contribs) 10:46, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi Rachel, it might be interesting to look at time perspective across cultures. Theres some interesting studies using the Zimbardo Stanford time perspective inventory as a measure. https://scholar.google.com.au/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5&as_vis=1&q=zimbardo+time+perspective+inventory+culture&btnG= this google scholar search will show you a heap of studies done using different cultural samples. --U3099598 (discuss • contribs) 04:50, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi Rachel Thanks for your lovely comment on my user page. I can't imagine doing an assignment like this in a second language - I'm in 'awe' of you!! I've made a few direct edits to your chapter you can review here All the best --u3122707 (discuss • contribs) 23:47, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Title, sub-title, TOC
Hi Rachel, Thank you for reading my chapter and providing feedback. It was perfect timing as I was writing about a balanced time perspective when you suggested that article - which I used so thank you! I have read yours and it looks great! As it is currently, I would suggest reducing the amount of feature boxes you have but I'm guessing you are still in the process of adding content. I noticed you briefly mentioned the Swedish version of the ZTPI, if you were looking to expand further, Mollineri et al (Molinari, L., Speltini, G., Passini, S., & Carelli, M. G. (2016). Time perspective in adolescents and young adults: Enjoying the present and trusting in a better future. Time & Society, 25(3), 594-612 https://dx.doi.org/10.1177/0961463X15587833 ) say it is a more reliable measure for adolescents' time perspective as it distinguishes between future thoughts of happiness, joy, hope etc. and future thoughts of worry and anxiety as the distinction is particularly relevant for adolescents with a more uncertain future. Maybe there is a difference in the relationship between TP and happiness between younger and older people. Also, I noticed you have the same issue with adding wikipedia links to your page as I had - it doesn't actually go to the wiki page. Instead of 'edit' if you do 'edit source' then type for example Emotion and then publish, it will add the wiki link. Happy studying! --WJDHR (discuss • contribs) 02:36, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
I just realised that typing the syntax in here has created the link instead of showing the format. I've changed the first three wiki links you have (Lewin, emotion and motivation). Go to edit source and notice the difference between those three and the subsequent wikipedia links, then you can change them. Cheers --WJDHR (discuss • contribs) 02:48, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
