Designing and testing a model  Psychological Well – Being  According to Personality traits with as mediator Ethnic Identitiy at Talesh


Introduction: people  have always  been  seeking  to understand  how  a  good  life  could  be  achieved  and  they  see  it a accompanied   by  well-being and  happiness. The notion of “well-being” has  been  used  in psychology  literature  as  a general term of  mental  health.

This study  aimed to construct  and  test  a  model  for  people’s  psychological  well-being  based  on personality  factors  in  Talesh  with  ethnic identity  as mediators.

Methods: 300 people  of   Talesh  who had  been  living  in the Gilan  region in the year  2016  were  selected  using  convenience  sampling  method  and  filled out Ryff’s  Psychological  Well-being  Scales  , Solgi  Ethnic Identity  Questionnaire, Short  NEO  Questionnaire .

The   current  study  is a descriptive (non-experimental), correlational, and path structural  modeling. Study  data  were  analyzed  using  Pearsonian  correlation test, Multi-variance  regression, and  linear  model  to be  exact, by the  software  Lisrel  version 8.5.

Results: results   indicate   that  personality  factors  have  influence  over people’s psychological  well-being. Of course, considering  the  negative  path  coefficient of  Neuroticism  with  psychological  well-being, the influence of  these  two variables on each  other is converse. Also, results  showed  that  the variable  ethnic identity  mediated  the  relations  of  all  personality  factors (except Neuroticism) to psychological  well-being.

Discussion and Conclusion: based on this research, there  is clear  perspective  for experts  to wards  life  satisfaction  and  psychological  well-being  among  Iranian ethnics. And  to reach  healthy  psychological  well-being  we  should  pay  special  attention  to social  support and  ethnic integrity.
