Finish this sentence: “I could be happy if…”
Invalid premise, as completing the sentence automatically defines the happiness as a future event depending on a set of circumstances. Of course people who usually follow rules will pick some future, conditional event they believe will make them happier. That's what you asked them to do. That doesn't mean they aren't happy with their lives, or don't appreciate what they have and who they are. It just means they're trying to answer the question as it was asked.
