Research has shown a positive relation between Flourishing and happiness, productivity, resiliency, life satisfaction, and a negative relation with death thoughts, physical illness, and stress experiment. The Workplace Flourishing Questionnaire (PERMA) is developed by Kern and was administered in Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and the United States and its psychometric properties were reported. Although flourishing in general and in the workplace is significant, it’s not mentioned in Iran. Aims: The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the PERMA flourishing Questionnaire at work for teachers in Iran.
