ABSTRACT

Life Satisfaction is an overall assessment of feelings and attitudes about one’s own life at a particular point of time which can range from negative to positive. Life Satisfaction is influenced by Birth order and Locus of control. The present research study aimed to study the impact of Birth order and Locus of control on Life satisfaction. Data was collected from 30 families who have three siblings (based on Adler’s Birth order theory) which included 41 males and 49 females. Rotter’s Locus of Control scale (1966) and Diener’s Satisfaction with Life scale (1985) were employed on participants of this study. The findings from this study indicated that there was no significant interaction effect of Birth order and Locus of control on Life satisfaction among both males and females. There was no significant mean difference in Life satisfaction between various birth order categories. Further research recommendations, implications and limitations of this study have also been discussed in this paper.
