 Meaning in life. The Polish version of Meaning in Life Questionnaire MLQ (PL) The aim of this manuscript is to present basic concepts regarding meaning in life (definitions, theoretical approaches, functions and methodological problems). It also reviews global tools which measure meaningfulness, and in particular it presents the results of the Polish language validation of the Meaning in Life Questionnaire - MLQ (PL). The authors of the original MLQ (Steger et al. 2006) define meaning in life as the declared sense made of, and significance felt regarding, the nature of one’s being and existence. The MLQ consists of two subscales: presence of, and search for, meaning in life. The study revealed that the Polish MLQ is relatively a good tool for measuring meaning in life in these domains. The reliability was demonstrated, but indices of confirmatory analysis were rather poor. Convergent and discriminant validity allows us to discuss what presence of, and the search for, meaning of life mean in Polish and American culture. These two notions of meaning in life may be complementary or mutually exclusive, depending on culture and population.
