Siła woli a subiektywny dobrostan i poczucie autodeterminacji: Moderujaca rola stresu

Romana Kadzikowska-Wrzosek


Abstract Two studies investigated the relevance of action vs. state orientation, perceived stress for subjective well-being and self- determination. According to Personality Systems Interactions (PSI) Theory, stressful life events (differentiated into demands and threats) were expected to reduce subjective well –being and self-determination when the ability to regulate affect was impaired. Decision related state orientation (SOD) is associated with an inability to self-generate positive affect in the face of demands, failure –related state orientation (SOF) is the inability to down-regulate negative affect in the threatening situation. In Study 1, state –oriented individuals proved less autonomous functioning in the face of increased stress. In Study 2, state –oriented individuals exhibited more symptoms of decreased subjective well –being then action oriented individuals when perceived stress was high. Stress increment led also state –oriented individuals to display less self –determination then action –oriented participants. Obtained results proved that depending on individual differences in affect regulation abilities, stress affected both subjective well-being and self-determination. The strength of volition plays an important role in dealing with stressful life events.
