Personality, Peer Relations, and Self-Confidence as Predictors of Happiness and Loneliness.
Cheng, Helen; Furnham, Adrian
Journal of Adolescence, v25 n3 p327-39 Jun 2002
Examines to what extent peer relations, self-confidence, and school performance correlate with self-rated happiness and loneliness in adolescents. Personality traits, self-confidence, friendship, and school grades were all significantly oppositely correlated with happiness and loneliness. Regressional analysis revealed that extraversion and neuroticism were direct predictors of happiness and self-confidence, while psychoticism and extraversion were direct predictors of loneliness.
