All participants filled in Basic Psychological Needs Scale, Big Five Inventory and Satisfaction with Life Scale.

Psychological needs explained 25%, 40% and 50% of life satisfaction variance in three samples, respectively. So, psychological needs explained more life satisfaction variance than personality, and amount of explained variance was increasing with age. Also, psychological needs explained additional variance over personality (16%, 17% and 29% in three samples, respectively), while personality has not contributed significantly to explaining life satisfaction variance over and beyond psychological needs.
