Benevolence is congruent with those hypothesised; Benevolence and Achievement

were not hypothesised to relate to depressed mood

Regarding values and SWB, similar themes emerged. The importance of values

as a whole, when assessed with correlations, regressions, and t-tests, was not

associated with SWB. Instead, current satisfaction with values as a whole was

associated with SWB. Correlation and regression analysis both indicated that greater

current satisfaction with values was associated with greater life satisfaction and

global happiness.

Secondly, Achievement and Benevolence are important in relation to SWB.

Correlation analysis indicated that greater global happiness was associated with

greater importance of, and current satisfaction with, both Achievement and

Benevolence. Regression analysis indicated that greater global happiness was

associated with greater importance of Achievement, and greater current satisfaction

with Benevolence was associated with both greater life satisfaction and emotional

wellbeing. Analysis using t-tests indicated that participants in the SWBG reported

greater importance of Benevolence, and greater current satisfaction with

Achievement and Benevolence.

Thirdly, values nearer to Openness-to-Change are related to SWB. Correlation

and regression analysis indicated that lesser importance of Hedonism was associated

Although the analysis indicated additional results (e.g., that greater current satisfaction with

Hedonism, Stimulation and Self-Direction was associated with greater depressed mood, that greater

importance of Conformity was associated with greater depressed mood, that DMG participants

reported lower current satisfaction with Hedonism and Security, or that the DMG‟s values were not as

coherent as the Non-DMG‟s), these did not highlight the same theme as Achievement and

Benevolence did.
