Hope and happiness as predictors of psychological well-being
I conducted a study to find whether hope and happiness predict psychological well-being. There are three objectives of the study. The first one is to identify the relationship between hope and Psychological well-being, Happiness and Psychological well-being, Hope and Happiness. The second objective is to find whether hope predicts psychological well-being and the third one is to identify if happiness predicts psychological well-being. To accomplish the above mentioned objectives different psychological tools are used namely: The Children’s Hope Scale (Snyder et al 1991), The Subjective Happiness Scale by Lyubomirsky and Lepper (1999) and Ryff’s (1995) Psychological Well-Being Scales (PWB). Pearson Correlation and Linear Regression are applied. The sample comprised of 81 adolescents chosen randomly from Bhiwani city of Haryana state. The result shows that there is positive correlation between Hope and Psychological well-being, Happiness and Psychological well-being and a negative correlation between Hope and Happiness. Both Hope and Happiness predict Psychological well-being.
