Regulatory aspects of subjective well-being
The main objective of the study was examining the relations between subjective well-being (SWB) and personal regulatory styles.
99 young persons participated in the empirical research with the use of Scale of Subjective Well-Being (Perrudet-Badoux, Mendelsohn, Chiche) methods for estimating of life-meaning orientations, styles of self-control, stress overcoming strategies, personal creativity.
Numerous correlations between the studied parameters were revealed. In general, high level of self-regulation is connected with mood stability, positive self-esteem of own health, but also - with high tension, sensitivity, increased need for social support.
We may conclude that the correction of the personality’s regulatory aspects can have a significant impact on his or her SWB, but the nature of this impact will be different for different SWB aspects. Certain level of psychological discomfort, accompanying any progressive development, motivates a person to a social creativity and acquisition of constructive coping strategies, but reduces the satisfaction with everyday life.
