The present study aims to examine the relationship of spiritual well being (SWB) with achievement motivation (AM) among the students of science and commerce streams. The concept of spiritual well being is becoming very popular among the researchers and the present day psychologists. It may be conceptualized as an expression about the spiritual health of an individual, about what his inner thinking leads him to do and how he performs in his life. Achievement motivation is a phenomenon which is affected mostly by spiritual well being in present day population. Achievement motivation can be said to be a need for achievement. It is an important determinant of aspiration, effort, and persistence when an individual expects his performance to be the best. In the present study, the Spiritual Well Being Scale (Paloutzian and Ellison, 1982) was used to measure SWB and Achievement Motivation Scale (Siddiqui Z.U., 2013) for achievement motivation. Correlation analysis was done to find out the relationship between SWB and achievement motivation. The result showed a negative and significant relationship (r= -.418, p< 0.01) between the SWB and achievement motivation and the dimensions of SWB, (Religious Well Being and Existential Well Being) were also negatively related to the achievement motivation. It was found that the correlation between SWB and achievement motivation was stronger among science stream students (r= -.457, p < 0.01) than the commerce stream students (r= -.390, p< 0.01), and also that correlation between SWB and achievement motivation was stronger among males than females.

Abstract


The present study aims to examine the relationship of spiritual well being (SWB) with achievement motivation (AM) among the students of science and commerce streams. The concept of spiritual well being is becoming very popular among the researchers and the present day psychologists. It may be conceptualized as an expression about the spiritual health of an individual, about what his inner thinking leads him to do and how he performs in his life. Achievement motivation is a phenomenon which is affected mostly by spiritual well being in present day population. Achievement motivation can be said to be a need for achievement. It is an important determinant of aspiration, effort, and persistence when an individual expects his performance to be the best. In the present study, the Spiritual Well Being Scale (Paloutzian and Ellison, 1982) was used to measure SWB and Achievement Motivation Scale (Siddiqui Z.U., 2013) for achievement motivation. Correlation analysis was done to find out the relationship between SWB and achievement motivation. The result showed a negative and significant relationship (r= -.418, p< 0.01) between the SWB and achievement motivation and the dimensions of SWB, (Religious Well Being and Existential Well Being) were also negatively related to the achievement motivation. It was found that the correlation between SWB and achievement motivation was stronger among science stream students (r= -.457, p < 0.01) than the commerce stream students (r= -.390, p< 0.01), and also that correlation between SWB and achievement motivation was stronger among males than females.
