    1. Introduction

    The field of subjective well-being comprises the scientific analysis of how people

    evaluate their lives both at the moment and for the longer period such as for the past years.

    These evaluations includes people‟s emotional reaction to events, their mood and judgement

    they form about their life satisfaction, fulfilment and satisfaction with domain such as

    marriage and work (Kulshrestha & Sen, 2006). Due to the this constant analysis of life‟s

    pleasant and unpleasant happenings, people sometimes experience high level stress, extreme

    guilt feelings and pointing blame over what had gone wrong. They worried about the impact

    on themselves, on thousands of others working for them and on their families. They are

    thinking and working impossibly long hours to turn the ongoing situation to feel more

    pleasurable. Here, comes the point when people made a sustainable turn around to raise the

    positive intelligence level for himself and as well as for the people around them to gain the

    true potential. This is the typical reaction, as the increase in positive intelligence impacts both

    performance and success on one hand and happiness and peace on other (Chamine, 2012).

    2. Literature Review

    Happiness has been a topic of interest for many centuries, starting with Ancient Greek

    philosophy, post-Enlightenment Western-European moral philosophy (especially

    Utilitarianism) to current quality-of-life and well-being research in social, political and

    economic sciences (Boniwell). The relationship between income and well-being has long

    been an area of interest to thinkers and philosophers, from Epicurus who believed that wealth

    and joy were not compatible, to modern economists, who often see income and consumption

    as being synonymous with happiness. Researchers have now studied this topic scientifically,

    using definitions of well-being with an empirical basis (Davis). Dodge (2012) debated on the

    need of definition and overviews of well being based on the person's physical health,

    psychological state, personal beliefs, social. Ryff (1989) stated that measures of

    psychological well-being have little theoretical grounding, despite an extensive literature on

    the contours of positive functioning. Ryff. Studied the aspects of well-being derived from this

    literature (i.e., self-acceptance, positive relations with others, autonomy, environmental

    mastery, purpose in life, and personal growth) were operational zed. Liang, J. (1984) studied

    various dimensions of the life satisfaction index and made a structural formulation. Shamin.

    S (2012) in his/her book titled Positive Intelligence stated exhaustively on what is positive

    intelligence, where and how to increase positive intelligence.

    3. Research Gaps

    From the literature review found that study on happiness is very old and literatures are

    also rich in many folds than that emerging and ever changing concept of well being. The

    literature on positive intelligence is very young and rare in the form of research. At the same

    time, study on content location in old literature on happiness, positive intelligence in

    wellbeing is rare. In this backdrop the search for location or positions of the contents of

    positive intelligence is understood as am importance knowledge exploration exercise.

    4. Objectives and Methodology

    The main objective of this paper is to identify the linkages between positive

    intelligence with subjective well-being. In addition, this paper has narrates the location or

    position of positive intelligence in subjective well-being of human being. To achieve the

    main objective, author of this study have made review based content analysis and to examine

    content locations of positive intelligence in the subjective well-being. The paper states the

    position of positive intelligence in the concept of subjective well-being with the help of picto-

    graph

    5. Subjective Well-Being (SWB) The concept of „subjective well-being‟ is considered as a synonym to the word

    „happiness‟, generally referred to an evaluation of one‟s own life considered as a whole.

    Sarracino (2008) stated well-being is a positive outcome which is meaningful for many

    people and many sectors of society; because it tells us that people perceive that their lives are

    going well. Life satisfaction (global judgement of one‟s life) and satisfaction with specific

    life domain (e.g. work satisfaction) are considered cognitive components of subjective well-

    being. Psychologist measures subjective well-being on how people think and feel about their

    lives. Here, the presence of positive effect does not mean the absence of negative effect and

    vice-versa. Though no universal definition exists for subjective well-being, however, some of

    the most well known researchers in this field offer the following definition:

    “Well-being, which we define as people‟s positive evaluation of their lives, includes

    positive emotions, engagement, satisfaction and meaning” (Diener and Seligman, 2004).

    “Subjective well-being is a broad category of phenomena that includes people

    emotional responses, domain satisfactions and global judgements of life satisfaction. Each of

    the specific construct needs to be understood in their own rights, yet the components often

    correlate substantially [....]” (Diener, Suh, Luca and Smith, 1999).

    Subjective well-being can simply be defined as the individual‟s current evaluation of

    her happiness. Such an evaluation is often expressed in affective terms; when asked about

    subjective well-being, participants will often say, “I feel good” (Kahnemen, Diener,Schwarz

    1999).

    Depending upon the above definition, when the people are asked to list the key

    characteristics of a good life, they are likely to include happiness, health and longevity.

    Similarly, as defined by most of the scholars a good culture is defined where health and

    happiness flourishes. Nonetheless, a number of study have founded that subjective well-being

    constructs are strongly associated with a range of personality traits. As the study conducted

    by the Laura Camfield in four developing
