Understanding happiness among young adults has been a core human endeavor and presently covers areas from education to work. The present study is an empirical investigation, to predict the role of personality, psychological well-being, and gratitude, in happiness among young adults. This study is based on a youth sample (N=109) with ages ranging from 18 to 23 years. There was a positive significant correlation observed among personality, psychological well-being, gratitude, and happiness. To predict the best predictors of happiness, step-wise regression analysis was carried out. Results based on step-wise regression demonstrated that happiness among young adults is significantly predicted by psychological well-being, gratitude, and extraversion. These three factors accounted for approximately 37%, 41%, and 44% of the variance respectively. This emphasizes the importance of these variables in the happiness of young adults.

Abstract


Understanding happiness among young adults has been a core human endeavor and presently covers areas from education to work. The present study is an empirical investigation, to predict the role of personality, psychological well-being, and gratitude, in happiness among young adults. This study is based on a youth sample (N=109) with ages ranging from 18 to 23 years. There was a positive significant correlation observed among personality, psychological well-being, gratitude, and happiness. To predict the best predictors of happiness, step-wise regression analysis was carried out. Results based on step-wise regression demonstrated that happiness among young adults is significantly predicted by psychological well-being, gratitude, and extraversion. These three factors accounted for approximately 37%, 41%, and 44% of the variance respectively. This emphasizes the importance of these variables in the happiness of young adults.
