Abstract:

Optimism, submissive behaviors, richness of social network and demographic variables were examined as predictors of psychological well-being among a cohort of Turkish people (N = 376) using a Turkish version (Şahin & Durak, 1994). of the Brief Symptom Inventory (Derogatis, 1992) a Turkish version (Aydın & Tezer, 1991, revised by Türküm, 2001) of the Life Orientation Test (Scheier, Carver, & Bridges, 1994), a Turkish version (Şahin & Şahin, 1992) of the Submissive Acts Scale (Gilbert & Allan, 1994), and the Social Atom Scale (Dökmen, 1993). Results of hierarchical regression analyses indicated that optimism, submissiveness, marital status and occupation status predict well-being. Social network richness, gender, and educational level did not contribute significantly to the variation in well-being.
