  • Psychological Well-Being,
  • Coastal Society


Indonesia is known as a maritime country, so it is not surprising that so many people live on the coast. This study aims to determine the role of personality on psychological well-being. 105 coastal communities were the subjects in this study. The instruments used were the Big Five Inventory (BFI) and The Ryff Scale Of Psychological Well-Being. Based on the results of data analysis using multiple regression, it was found that personality played a role in the psychological well-being of coastal communities where the direction of the positive relationship was found in agreeableness and neuroticism, while the direction of the negative relationship was found in conscientiousness and openness to experience. Future researchers are expected to consider the role of demography on the psychological well-being of coastal communities.
