ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between seriousness in leisure experience, positive psychological capital for leisure, and life satisfaction. The data was collected from 320 leisure activity participants using convenience sampling methods. Seriousness in leisure experience was measured using six items, rated on a five-point Likert scale, selected from previous research (Gould, 2011; Kim, 2010). Positive psychological capital for leisure was adapted from sixteen items developed by Luthans et al.(2007a), and Kim (2013). Quality of life was measured with five items, following the recommendation by Diener et al. (1985). One of the most important findings is that the investigation of internal consistency and the CFA of the scale confirm the sufficient reliability and validity of the measurement variables. Data analysis revealed that seriousness in leisure experience has an positive and significant effect on quality of life through positive psychological capital for leisure. Future research is needed to study the relationships between measurement variables and their antecedents from a longitudinal approach.
