Sammanfattning (abstract):
The present study investigated adolescents temperamental dispositions described in terms of affective personalities, and how these affective personalities differ in their satisfaction with life, how they recall and recognize and interpret events. Furthermore, the study examined to what extent memories of life events predicts the affective personalities satisfaction with life. A total of 70 male and 65 female high- school students with an age mean of 17 years participated in the study. The affective personality classification was developed through The Positive Affect and Negative Affect Scales, satisfaction with life was measured with The Satisfaction With Life Scale, interpretation and memory for events was assessed by life events recollection and interpretation and recognition of words in a short story. High and low affective adolescents showed a tendency to interpret and remember events as self-actualizing adolescents and self-destructive adolescents as well. Although all personalities, self- destructive not included, showed positive biases; only individuals with high positive affect were primed for positive stimuli. Life events predicted only self-destructive and low affective adolescents satisfaction with life. The self-actualizing personality emerged as the only ones to remain more satisfied with life in the long term. To conclude, the study acknowledges individual differences in temperamental dispositions and its relation to satisfaction with life.
