Exploring the relationship between cognitive well-being and affect among young adults
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.
