Abstract

Conscientiousness is one of predictors of life satisfaction. Resilience plays an important role in conscientiousness. This paper examines the relation between the conscientiousness and life satisfaction, and tests the mediate effect of resilience. We chose 110 undergraduate students from Hainan University to complete a battery of tests, including the conscientiousness subscale of NEO-Five-Factor-Inventory, the resilience scale for Chinese adolescents and the life satisfaction scale for Chinese adolescents. The results show that conscientiousness is significantly positive correlated with life satisfaction and resilience; resilience is significantly positive correlated with general life satisfaction. Regression analyses results reveal that resilience mediates the relation between conscientiousness and life satisfaction.
