Abstract

Existing research across cultures often demonstrates that subjective well-being (SWB) is influenced by a person’s culture. Individualistic and collectivistic cultures vary in how they rate their subjective wellbeing as a result of the different values inherent in each culture. The following paper provides an overview of the many studies that show how the role of culture affects SWB. It will determine whether self-identity or group membership impacts how people rate their life satisfaction. Studies that support the individualistic side and studies that support the collectivistic side will be observed to determine if different cultural values impact how people rate their SWB. This research suggests that subjective well-being is indeed influenced by culture.
