ABSTRACT

The present study aimed at exploring the relationship between an individual’s cognitive appraisal of their lives and its relation to affect. Cognitive and emotional well-being plays an integral role in the way an individual perceives his/her life and its outcomes. Quantitative data was collected from 100 young adults between the ages of 18-24 using the Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener et. al 1985) and Positive Affect Negative Affect Scale (Watson et. al 1988). Analysis of data revealed that there was a significant difference in the level of cognitive well-being and positive affect between men and women. A moderate positive correlation was found between cognitive well-being and positive affect as well.
