Objective: This study aims to investigate the potential mediation role of purpose in life in the association between resilience and happiness among university students.
Methods: A sample of 410 students from the University of Shiraz and the University of Hormozgan participated in this research using a convenience sampling method in the 2022-2023 academic year. To collect data, the Resilience Scale (RS-14; Wagneild, 2009; Hashemi et al., 2018), the Measure of Happiness (MH; Rizzato et al., 2022; Tavoosi et al., in press), the Purpose in Life Test-Short Form (PIL-SF; Schulenberg et al., 2011; Tavoosi et al., in press) were used.
Results: Results indicated that resilience and purpose in life were predictors of happiness, accounting for 34% and 62% of the variance, respectively. Also, resilience predicts 35% of the variance of purpose in life. The results of the model showed that purpose in life plays a mediating variable in the association between resilience and happiness.
Conclusions: The findings of the present research provide evidence that people with higher resilience have a purpose in their lives, and having a purpose in life can increase psychological well-being so that people with a purpose in life report higher levels of happiness.
