Abstract:In recent years many researchers state that people from modern society invent themselves by developing lifestories. These kinds of stories are based on autobiographical memories and self-defining memories constitute a part of them. Lifestories are directly linked to the sense of identity: if lifestories change, identity changes as well. This study examines the up to now missing relation between self-defining memories and subjective, social, and psychological well-being. The hypotheses state the following: The quantity of specific, integrative, and positive memories is significantly related to subjective, social, and psychological well-being by people older than 50, if it is checked for significant correlated background variables.
