NOVOA, Consuelo  and  BARRA, Enrique. Influence of perceived social support and personality factors in vital satisfaction of university students. Ter Psicol [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.3, pp.239-245. ISSN 0718-4808.

This study examined the relationship of life satisfaction with perceived social support and personality factors in 353 male and female students from the University of Concepcion (Chile). Results showed high levels of perceived social support and life satisfaction in this sample. Social support had significant positive relationships with life satisfaction. Life satisfaction had negative relationship with neuroticism and direct relationships with extraversion, conscientiousness and agreeableness. Social support and neuroticism were the main predictors of vital satisfaction, with social support having higher relative influence. Diverse explanatory factors for obtained results are proposed.

Keywords : vital satisfaction; perceived social support; big five personality traits; personality; university students.
