Çevik, Gülsen Büyüksahin
Journal of Education and Practice, v8 n7 p187-195 2017
The current research aims to study university students' levels of anger and satisfaction with life, based on gender, years of attendance, accommodation, and whether they experience adjustment problems. The current research participants included a total of 484 individuals (X-bar age = 22.56; SD = 1.72; range = 19-37), with 269 (55.6%) males and 215 (44.4%) females, attending the Adiyaman University during 2015-2016 academic years in Turkey. The data was collected through the "Personal Information Form", "State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory" and "Satisfaction with Life Scale". Descriptive statistics, Pearson product-moment correlation, multi-variate variance analysis (One-Way MANOVA), and Tukey HSD test among post-hoc multiple comparison tests were used in the data analysis. The results showed that satisfaction with life was found to have a positive relationship with anger control and negative relationships with all anger dimensions. Another finding in the current research was about the lack of significant difference in student's levels of satisfaction with life, based on gender. Anger scores not differing on years of attendance. However, scores of satisfaction with life were on significant levels, based on years of attendance. Another finding of the current research indicated that anger-out and trait anger dimensions of satisfaction with life did not differ on accommodation (home, dormitory). On the other hand, the group effect of the anger-in scores were found to be on significant levels. As such, anger-in scores of individuals living in the dormitories were found to be higher than those of individuals living in homes.
