ABSTRACT

Considering that ego integrity can be achieved by accepting both successes and failures from the past, the memories of the past experience would have an important impact on ego integrity. This study was designed to explore the link between the memory of the past experiences and ego integrity. The participants were interviewed about their past experiences and asked about their ego integrity, depression and life satisfaction. Although they all were satisfied with most of their past experiences and had positive memories, 80 percent of them were still unhappy and frustrated with their academic careers. In addition, their relationship with parents, marital satisfaction, and post-retirement life satisfaction have a static correlation with their ego integrity. It was also confirmed that the elderly with higher levels of ego integrity had lower levels of depression and higher levels of life satisfaction.
