|Satisfaction with one`s life is the ultimate goal of us all, yet it seems to remain so elusive. But what is satisfaction? Is it the same for everyone, and what steps or accomplishments need to be obtained in order to realize this stage of life? People have, and continue to search for, satisfaction with their lives. This study was conducted to determine if the variables of gender, age or income were related to life satisfaction among a group of 80 participants. The participants were chosen at random from a work environment, two classroom settings, faculty of a community college, and a senior adult social setting. The participants were told that they were completing a survey as part of a research assignment for a college psychology class. They were asked to fill out an 18-question survey that would measure their general attitude with relation to Life Satisfaction. The survey was then graded and the scores were separated by categories of age, gender and income. The results suggest that we become more satisfied with our lives as we get older. This could be that as we age we come to realize that most of the important things in life are not for sale. Among these are work satisfaction, friendship, and pleasures of solitary thought, reading, and other forms of non-commercial leisure (Lane, 1994).|
