Happiness As A Manner of Traveling: Predictors of Life Satisfaction
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study was to compare the predictive strengths of various objective life circumstances and various measures of emotional and cognitive well-being, such as self-esteem, body-esteem, coping self-efficacy, generativity, and ego integrity to life satisfaction among women. This study aims to understand life satisfaction on a larger scale and to begin exploring the question: Is happiness a product of the objective circumstances of our lives (our family structure, our income, etc), or a product of our attitudes toward our lives and ourselves? In other words, is our happiness determined by what happens in our lives, or by how we internalize, reflect, cope, and create meaning?
