In this episode of the Ikigai Podcast, I speak with Dr. Dean Fido on his translation and validation of the Ikigai-9

The Ikigai-9 is a psychometric tool used as a means of measuring Ikigai across the dimensions of:

  • optimistic and positive emotions toward life
  • active and positive attitudes towards one's future
  • and acknowledgment of the meaning of one's existence.

The Ikigai-9 consists of nine items measuring one’s reason for being through dimensions of emotions towards one’s life, attitudes towards one’s future, and the acknowledgment of one’s existence.
