Abstract:


The current study used a survey model to analyze 450 university students between 18 and 28 years of age to investigate associations between subjective well-being, positive and negative affect. Data were collected from Positive and Negative Affect Scale (PANAS) and Subjective Well-Being Scale. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients were determined. We found that there was a significant negative relationship between subjective well-being and negative affect. However, there was a significant positive relationship between subjective well-being and positive affect. Besides, it was found that negative and positive affects making significantly explain subjective well-being.
