The scale you completed was the Time Attitudes Inventory, developed by Zena R. Mello and Frank C. Worrell (2007).

This scale measures how positively or negatively you feel about your past, present, and future.

The graph below demonstrates your time attitudes (in green) and compares them to the average time attitudes of all other survey-takers (in purple) . The higher your score, the more intense your feelings are in evaluating your past, present, or future either positively or negatively.

Why are time attitudes important for well-being? Time attitudes are more important than feeling good or bad in the present. For example, the way we think about our past influences our psychological well-being in the present – thinking well of the past improves our friendships, moods, and self-esteem. Likewise, we may live recklessly if we set out to enjoy the present while feeling doomed in regard to the future.
