The level of satisfaction in people
Satisfaction with life is one of several aspects of positive mental health. It is not a direct, verifiable experience, nor a known personal fact, but a cognitive product that involves a comparative process between the individual’s current life situation and internalized standards, allowing respondents to use the information they subjectively deem relevant when evaluating their own lives. The Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) is perhaps the most commonly used measure of life satisfaction worldwide. The Satisfaction with Life Scale is perhaps the most widely used measure of well-being worldwide. The dimensionality of SWLS has been widely discussed, but most studies have been based on specialized sample groups limited in size and biased with respect to gender, age, and relevant socio-demographic parameters. The scale consists of five statements and was originally developed to circumvent problems inherent in previous scales based on single items, or scales based toward domain or culture-specific items. As people derive their life satisfaction from different sources and vary considerably in their ideas about what constitutes a good life, the SWLS measures people’s perception of their life as a whole, using items that are supposedly free from the varying criteria people use when evaluating their lives. The scale thus reflects a global evaluative judgment, partly determined by the respondent’s current mood and immediate context, and partly by stable personality factors and genetic influences. The result of the SWLS is based on 7 point liker scale. The result obtained showed that the test conducted on the 60 students from VIT University most of them are satisfied with their life scoring between 25-29 ranges. This makes them obtain high score in the satisfaction scale. This implies that more than 75 percent of the students in the University are satisfied with the things thy attained in their life. Dissatisfaction with life can occur due to different bad experiences with life. But having the opportunity to study in an institution as this signifies that inmost ways their life must have offered them with most of the things they ever wanted in life. This leaves them with no reason to be not satisfied with life. But exceptions exist everywhere. In the survey it has also been see that though a very less number, but there also exist some who are dissatisfied with life. This maybe due to their past bitter experiences with life. But such students who are not satisfied with life are only one which will account to only around 5 percent of the total students understudy.
