Study title: An investigation of the relationship between personality type as a predictor of overall general life satisfaction
You are invited to take part in a research study which I am conducting as part of my Psychology degree at the University of Derby. This research is investigating the link between personality traits and overall general life satisfaction.
Life satisfaction is a measure of personal well-being and refers to an individual’s general attitudes and feelings regarding their own life. Each of these traits are measured on a scale.
As a participant in this study, you will be asked to complete a short personality questionnaire and then a life satisfaction questionnaire.
