Contribution of Social Self-Efficacy and Need for Cognition in the Prediction of Life-Satisfaction: Does it Differ According to the Level of Family Income

Auther : Abdul-kareem Jaradat

The present study aimed at investigating whether there were differences in life-satisfaction (LS), social self-efficacy (SSE), and need for cognition (NFC) between family income levels; it also sought to explore the contribution of SSE and NFC in the prediction of LS according to the level of family income. The study sample consisted of 607 undergraduate students. Participants filled out three scales assessing LS, SSE and NEC. The study found that LS among students from families with high incomes was sig-nificantly higher than that of students from families with low incomes. It was also found that neither SSE nor NEC contributed significantly in predicting LS among students from families with low incomes. However, only SSE contributed significantly in predicting LS among students from families with medium incomes, and both SSE and NFC, respective-ly, contributed significantly in predicting LS among students from families with high in-comes. It was concluded that family income should be considered when examining the predictive value of personality variables on life- satisfaction in college students.
Keywords: Life-satisfaction, Social self-efficacy, need for cognition, Family income.
