Optimism, submissive behaviors, richness of social network, and demographic variables were examined as predictors of psychological well-being among a cohort of Turkish people (N = 376) using a Turkish version (Sahin & Durak, 1994) of the Brief Symptom Inventory (Derogatis, 1992); a Turkish version (Aydın & Tezer, 1991, revised by Türküm, 2001) of the Life Orientation Test (Scheier, Carver, & Bridges, 1994); a Turkish version (Sahin & Sahin, 1992) of the Submissive Acts Scale (Gilbert & Allan, 1994); and the Social Atom Scale (Dökmen, 1995). Results of hierarchical regression analyses indicated that optimism,
submissiveness, marital status, and occupation status predict well-being. Social network richness, gender, and educational level did not contribute significantly to the variation in well-being.
