The aim of this study was to examine the structural model of self-satisfaction based on identity and social justice in Master and PhD students of Tehran universities. The method of the present study is correlational. The statistical population includes all master and PhD students of Tehran universities in 2020. The sample size was estimated based on Morgan's table formula 382 people who were selected by stratified random sampling. To collect data, the questionnaire of self-satisfaction (Diener et al., 1985), objective measure of ego identity status questionnaire (Bennion & Adams, 1986) and social justice scale (Hezar Jeribi, 2011) were used. The face and content validity, the convergent validity and the discriminant validity were confirmed. The reliability of the questionnaire was obtained through Cronbach's alpha for the questionnaire of.898. LISREL and SMARTPLS-3 software were used for data analysis. The results indicated that identity with beta -0.27 has a negative and significant relationship with self-satisfaction and social justice with beta 0.18 has a positive and significant relationship with self-satisfaction. In general, the research findings emphasize the need to pay attention to the capacities of family, university and peers in the development of individuals 'personality and students' sense of social justice.
