Numerous data prove that positive emotions are a vital factor for building happiness. The article postulates to distinguish between automatically raised (homeostatic and hedonic) and reflective emotions (due to the deliberative thinking, the self-standards and axiological concepts) as bases of wellbeing. The latter are often considered asbase of “the true happiness”. The authors assume that the so-called complete happiness can be achieved from both types of emotions. The results of an exploratory study confirm the hypothesis predicting that the participants who declare the higher level of happiness rate highly both types of emotions, whereas those who declared the lower level of happiness indicate the automatic emotions as the main source of happiness.
