Subjective well-being among teenagers of different ages: the role of emotional reactivity and social support from various sources
Agnieszka Bojanowska , Anna Zalewska
AbstractData on emotional reactivity, perceived social support from different sources and subjective well-being (SWB) was gathered from 480 students aged 13/14 and 17/18. Regression analyses included emotional reactivity and social support from different sources as predictors of SWB (positive affect, negative affect and life satisfaction). Analyses showed that emotional reactivity predicted all components of SWB but beta values suggested that the role of emotional reactivity increases with age. Support from the family facilitated positive affect and life satisfaction. Support from peers from outside school was identified as a predictor unique to positive affect among 17/18 year olds (positive relationship). There were also interaction effects between sources of support and emotional reactivity specific to age groups. In summary, emotional reactivity and social support from various sources played different roles for the SWB components of the two groups of teenagers. Key terms: social support, subjective well-being, emotional reactivity
