The present paper aimed to study psychological well-being in relation to gender and optimistic attitude among college students. Two hundred first year Arts, Commerce and Science students (100 males and 100 females) from different colleges in Islampur and Sangli (Maharashtra) participated in the present study. The participants received Psychological Well-Being Scale (PWB) with five subscales (Sisodia and Choudhary, 2012) and Optimistic-Pessimistic Attitude Scale (Parashar, 1998). The multivariate and univariate analyses were directed to assess the subscale consistency of the PWB, the factor structure of the PWB in terms of its subscales, and gender differences in PWB, its subscales and optimistic attitude. The relationship between psychological well-being, its subscales and optimistic attitude has been thoroughly analyzed. The obtained results are discussed in the light of earlier work.
