ABSTRACT

Most of the problems in our lives occur due to our failure in maintaining social relations. From family to nations, sound relationships are basis of harmony. Our well-being is directly dependent upon how well we are able to get along with others. In present study an attempt was made to examine the relationship of this ability i.e. social intelligence with positive and negative well-being. In positive well-being, Life satisfaction was assessed and in negative wellbeing depressive symptoms were assessed. Participants comprised of 50 adult women students. Social intelligence was measured by using Tromso Social Intelligence Scale, Depressive Symptoms was measured by CES-D Scale and Life Satisfaction was assessed through Satisfaction with Life Scale. After analyzing data a significant positive correlation was found between Satisfaction with Life and Social Intelligence (r= .46, sig. 0.01) and significant negative correlation was found between Social Intelligence and Satisfaction with Life (r=-.36**, sig. 0.01). Thus it can be said on the basis of results that social intelligence plays a role in determining well-being.
