Subjective Well-Being, Psychological Well-Being, and Islamic Religiosity

Faizah Binti Awad, Ros Mayasari


Abstract: Attention and study of the problem of happiness and prosperity in the field of psychology are specifically motivated by the positive psychology movement. Positive psychology is a new movement in the disciplines of psychology that emphasizes on the exploration of potentials in human beings. Well-being in the context of positive psychology evolved in two different approaches hedonic and eudemonic approaches also referred to as SWB and psychological well-being. Research on the development of well-being has entered the discourse of whether the two approaches are of identical or distinct constructs. This study aims to investigate whether the SWB and psychological well-being are indistinguishable constructs, and to scrutinize the relationship between these two constructs with religiosity. Data were collected from questionnaires filled out by 159 students of IAIN Kendari. The results indicate that both constructs of well-being are completely different and are not even related. Of the two constructs of well-being, only psychological well-being has a significant correlation with religiosity.
