The prevalent discourse is to create it as a state but some scholars have proposed that understanding it as a mechanism may be more fitting. Finally, studies have begun to examine whether there is a connection between eudaimonic well-being and variations in personality, or whether eudaimonic well- being can be seen as a feature of personality in itself. More precisely, research aims to find out if there is such a thing as a hedonic or eudaimonic orientation which gives a greater propensity to experience eudaimonic well-being. The principle of pwb consists of six components: self-acceptance (positive self- assessment and life assessment), personal growth, purpose in life, positive relationships with others, environmental mastery (capacity to handle one"s life and environment effectively) and autonomy. The six-factor model with modest correlations between two subscales of pwb (self-acceptance and environmental mastery) and swb (the other variables associated weakly or inconsistently with these indicators) has some empirical support (ryff and keyes, 1995).
