Abstract:Background: This systematic review examined whether current causal evidence support the assumptions that (1) the basic psychological needs are determinants of subjective vitality and subjective fatigue and that (2) they are related but yet distinct necessary psychological nutriments for subjective vitality and subjective fatigue. Method: A systematic PRISMA review was conducted. Through a search on Scopus and PsycInfo 8 eligible studies were identified. Results: Cumulative evidence supported a positive causal relationship between basic needs and subjective vitality. Evidence for a negative causal relationship between relatedness satisfaction and emotional fatigue was found. Causal evidence supported the aggregated positive effect of basic need satisfactions on subjective vitality under the condition that each basic need is satisfied, but not all basic needs were found to have a significant independent impact. Conclusion: This systematic review contributes to the empirical soundness of SDT since findings support that the basic needs are determinants of subjective vitality. Also, SDT's conceptualization of the basic needs as related constructs and requirements for subjective vitality was supported, whether they are three distinct constructs still needs to be explored. Found evidence also suggests that the explanatory and predictive power of SDT might be improved by incorporating subjective fatigue.
