Özet

This study aimed to investigate the effect of self-efficacy and cynical attitudes on life satisfaction. Participants, including 330 college students of whom 66.97% were women in the 18-36 age range (M = 21.20, SD = 1.91), from different academic departments and class levels of a state university in Middle Anatolia, completed the Self-Efficacy Scale, the Cynical Attitudes Towards University Scale, the Life Satisfaction Scale and the personal information form. In data analysis, correlation and regression analysis were utilized. The correlation analysis indicated significant relations between self-efficacy, cynical attitudes towards university, and life satisfaction. Self-efficacy and cynical attitudes towards university explained 17% of the variance in life satisfaction. The results were discussed in the light of information obtained from related literature and some suggestions for further studies were provided.
