ABSTRACT

A main goal of psychology is to improve the quality of human life by studying processes and mechanisms underlying human mind and behavior. Thus, the current research aimed to predict life satisfaction in terms of emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and perceived social support. The participants completed Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale (WLEIS), Life Satisfaction, Rosenberg Self-esteem, and Multidimensional Perceived Social Support scales. The results of correlation coefficient indicated that all of the studied variables were positively significantly correlated with life satisfaction. Also, the regression analysis showed that emotional intelligence and perceived social support could predict life satisfaction significantly. The implications and limitations of the research are discussed.
