Interindividual differences in the correlates of global life satisfaction

More than 40 years ago, it has been suggested that global life satisfaction judgements reflect individually weighted composites of satisfaction with various life domains (e.g. work, health, family). Intuitively, it seems quite plausible that, for example, the strength of the association between job satisfaction and global life satisfaction varies between individuals depending on their personal values and their broader life situation. However, the empirical evidence for such patterns has been surprisingly weak. In my talk, I'm going to present both published and preliminary results concerning the questions whether the correlates of global life satisfaction vary systematically.
