The Flourishing Scale is a brief 8-item summary measure of the respondent's self-perceived success in important areas such as purpose, self-esteem, relationships, and optimism. The scale provides a single psychological wellbeing score. The Flourishing Scale (FS) has not yet been used for Judo players. The objectives of the current research are twofold as follows: i) to test the structural validity and internal consistency of the flourishing scale; ii) to test the mediation of subjective vitality between the relationships of flourishing and life satisfaction. Two studies were conducted with 423 Egyptian Judo players (n =204; n =119). They aged from 17 to 28 years (M = 19. 89, SD = 6.01). The Flourishing Scale (FS) was administrated in the first study. In the second, the Flourishing Scale (FS), Subjective Vitality Scale (SVS), and the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) were administrated. Results show that FS has good structure validity and internal consistency. Subjective vitality is a mediator in the relationship between flourishing and life satisfaction.

Abstract


The Flourishing Scale is a brief 8-item summary measure of the respondent's self-perceived success in important areas such as purpose, self-esteem, relationships, and optimism. The scale provides a single psychological wellbeing score. The Flourishing Scale (FS) has not yet been used for Judo players. The objectives of the current research are twofold as follows: i) to test the structural validity and internal consistency of the flourishing scale; ii) to test the mediation of subjective vitality between the relationships of flourishing and life satisfaction. Two studies were conducted with 423 Egyptian Judo players (n =204; n =119). They aged from 17 to 28 years (M = 19. 89, SD = 6.01). The Flourishing Scale (FS) was administrated in the first study. In the second, the Flourishing Scale (FS), Subjective Vitality Scale (SVS), and the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) were administrated. Results show that FS has good structure validity and internal consistency. Subjective vitality is a mediator in the relationship between flourishing and life satisfaction.
