Life satisfaction (LS) is a cognitive component of Subjective well-being. In this study life satisfaction is compared with dispositional personality traits and negative personal traits (Dark triad).Subjects: 363 respondents (55,6% women; aged 18 to 70 years, M = 25,3 SD = 10,7). Life satisfaction is associated primarily with extraversion. There are moderate correlations between LS and emotionality, conscientiousness and agreeableness. Narcissism was the only negative personality trait that correlated (positively) with psychological well-being.

Keywords: life satisfaction, subjective well-being, dispositional personality traits, Dark triad
