Cognitive Reappraisal, a Mediating Variable in the Relation between Personality and Wellbeing

Liliana Bujor


Abstract: The mediating variable quality of cognitive reappraisal (CR) within the predictive relationship between personality and wellbeing was tested using the method of bootstrapping in mediation models, on a group of 516 subjects, aged between 14 and 34 (M = 18.62; SD = 3.32). This model was constructed according to the independent variables studied- personality dimensions and dependent variable- wellbeing. Wellbeing was operationalized by: positive affects, negative affects, emotional distres and life satisfaction.  The test results provide support to the mediating role of CR in the relationship between personality and positive affects. Extraversion, conscientiousness and emotional stability are partially mediated by RC in relation to positive affects.
