Life goals, personal values and individual well-being: an empirical study - People fell happier and more satisfied when they have the possibility to devote themselves to the achievement of their life-goals, the most important goals usually reflect high-priority values that function as life guides. Main aim of the present study, involving 240 Italian adults, was to investigate the relationships among personal values, life-goals, and individual wellbeing. We identified various types of people considering their personal values and life-goals; they were then compared on four well-being indicators: life satisfaction, self-esteem, optimism, and hedonic balance. The pursuit of "relational" life-goals, supported by universalism and benevolence values, promotes higher levels of self-esteem and life satisfaction.
Keywords: Key words: personal goals, personal values, life satisfaction, self-esteem, optimism, hedonic Balance
