The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between personality and life satisfaction in adults. This study was performed on (N=100) adults of Bhiwani, Haryana selected by random sampling. NEO-Five Factor Inventory (Costa & McCrae, 1998) and Life Satisfaction Scale (Alam & Shrivastava, 1996) were used for the present study. Neuroticism had a significant negative correlation with life satisfaction (personal life satisfaction & total scores of life satisfaction). Extroversion was positively correlated with life satisfaction (health, economic, social, & job). Openness to experience was positively correlated with all dimensions of life satisfaction. Agreeableness was positively correlated with life satisfaction (health, economic, & marital). Conscientiousness had a positive correlation with total life satisfaction.
