Dindarlık ve Hayat Memnuniyeti Arasındaki İlişkide Varoluşsal Anlamın Aracı Rolünün Test Edilmesi: Müslüman Türk Üniversite Öğrencileri Üzerine Bir Araştırma

Year 2022, Volume 11, Issue 21, 1 - 17, 15.01.2022

Abstract

Bu çalışma, dindarlık ile yaşamdan memnuniyet arasındaki ilişkide anlamın yaşamdaki aracı rolünü test etmeyi amaçlamaktadır. Araştırmanın örneklemi, Türkiye'deki iki farklı üniversiteden 256 Müslüman Türk lisans öğrencisinden alınmıştır. Katılımcılar tesadüfi örnekleme tekniği ile seçilmiştir. 144 (%56,3) kadın ve 112 (%43,8) erkekten oluşan ve 20-40 yaş aralığında olan örneklemin yaş ortalaması 23 (SD= 0,2065)’tür. Bu çalışmada Çok Boyutlu Varoluşsal Anlam Ölçeği, Kısa Dindarlık Ölçeği ve Yaşamdan Memnuniyet Ölçeği kullanılmıştır. Korelasyon analizi, dindarlık, hayatın anlamı ve hayattan memnuniyet arasında pozitif bir ilişki olduğunu ortaya koymuştur. Ayrıca, yol analizi, hayattaki anlamın, dindarlık ve hayattan memnuniyetine etkisinde kısmi aracı faktör olarak rol oynadığını göstermiştir.

Testing the Mediating Role of Existential Meaning on the Link between Religiosity and Satisfaction with Life: A Study on Turkish Muslim University Students

Year 2022, Volume 11, Issue 21, 1 - 17, 15.01.2022

Abstract

This study aims to test the mediating role of meaning in life in the relationship between religiosity and life satisfaction. The sample of the study recruited from 256 Turkish Muslim undergraduates from two different universities in Turkey. Participants were recruited through random sampling technique. The mean age of the sample, which consisted of 144 (56.3%) women and 112 (43.8%) men, was between the ages of 20-40 and was 23 (SD= 0.2065). The Multidimensional Existential Meaning Scale, Short Religiosity Scale, and Satisfaction with Life Scale are utilised in this study. Correlation analysis revealed that there is a positive correlation between religiosity, meaning in life, and satisfaction with life. Furthermore, path analysis showed that meaning in life played a partial mediating role in the effect of religiosity and life satisfaction.
