Forms of present time orientation and satisfaction with life in the context of attitudes toward past and future
Abstract:The relationships between forms of present time orientation (active concentration, hedonism, and fatalism) and satisfaction with life were examined. Data from 320 participants on time orientation measures and two satisfaction with life measures were analyzed using regression and canonical analyses. Unlike hedonism and fatalism, active present time orientation was associated with greater satisfaction with life and with more effective achievement of goals.
