Diener, Seek, and Oishi1 proposed that high SWB means many pleasant and few unpleasant experiences and high life satisfaction. Practitioners of complementary medicine see well-being as a state of harmony, a balance between internal and external worlds2. Thus, a person’s state of well-being is not solely depending upon a number of external factors but also on internal psychological factors. More specifically, personality factors have an influencing role3 as revealed through personality research 4. The most commonly known and utilized theories that link personality to SWB are the temperamental models which suggest the biological involvement on one’s level of happiness and instrumental perspective that suggests the indirect link whereby Neuroticism, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness affect SWB5. Other models explaining relationship between personality and SWB are viz., return to baseline approach, emotion socialization approaches, cognitive approaches, congruence approaches, homeostasis approach and goal approaches.
