ABSTRACT

The present study aimed at exploring time perspective in relation to psychological wellbeing among 90 subjects belonging to 3 different age categories. The time perspective questionnaire ( Zimbardo & Boyd ,1999 ) and psychological wellbeing questionnaire ( Bhogle et al, 1995) were administered to a sample of 90 ( 30- Adolescence, 30-Middle Age and 30-Old Age). Data were analyzed with the help of one – way ANOVA and correlation. The results indicated significant differences across 3 age levels in past negative and future areas of time perspective. In past negative area of time perspective the older generation has obtained significantly higher mean than the other two age groups. In future time perspective the younger generation has obtained significantly higher mean. The result also found no significant corelationship between time perspective and wellbeing.
