ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to identify the mechanisms that link parent attachment and life satisfaction among university students. Building upon previous research, parent attachment can develop passion and grit in that it provides secure bases for exploration and self-determination. Two research models that include harmonious and obsessive passion were verified based on the dualistic model of passion. Acceptable model fit indices were achieved for both models. Significant mediating effects of passion and grit were found for the relationship between parent attachment and life satisfaction. Additionally, the serial multiple mediation of harmonious passion and grit was also shown. This study empirically confirmed the influence of parent attachment as an ecological factor for the growth of passion and grit. Results of the study were further discussed in light of structural relations among family, motivational, and personality factors to enhance life satisfaction.
