About the Book

Although the influence of depression on life satisfaction has been largely documented, very little is known about the factors underlying this relationship. The present study proposes an intrapersonal model of life satisfaction, which focuses on one common determinant of depression and life satisfaction, ruminative self-focus, and two factors that may mediate the relationship between depression and life satisfaction, working memory capacity and autonoetic consciousness. 53 dating couples completed three working memory tasks, as well as a personality questionnaire that assessed depression and life satisfaction levels. Additionally, they wrote about three positive autobiographical events involving them and their partner and rated their "transportation" (i.e., autonoetic consciousness in the episodes recalled. Path analysis generally supported our proposed model of life satisfaction, although it suggested that non-clinical variation in depression as a trait does not affect working memory capacity.
