The Role of Resilience in the Relationships between Externality of Happiness and Subjective Well-being and Flourishing: A Structural Equation Model Approach

Abstract


The present study investigated the role of resilience in the relationships between the externality of happiness and subjective well-being and flourishing. A sample of 243 healthy Turkish adults (164 males and 79 females) with a mean age of 37.1 (SD = 9) completed measures of externality of happiness, positive and negative affect, satisfaction with life, flourishing, and resilience. Correlation analyses showed that externality of happiness was negatively correlated with positive affect, satisfaction with life, flourishing, and resilience, whilst being positively correlated with negative affect. Structural equation modeling was used to carry out a mediation analysis. The results indicated that resilience mediated the relationships between the externality of happiness and subjective well-being and flourishing. These findings will facilitate an understanding of the factors associated with subjective well-being and flourishing, and were discussed in the light of the relevant literature. The theoretical and practical implications of the findings were provided.
