Estimates (p Values) for each of the individual dimensions of psychological well-being from linear mixed-effects models predicting EBR magnitude measures of recovery from negative pictures.
Note: β (p) values in bold indicate p<0.05.*
A Models include covariates controlling for the EBR magnitude at the reactivity probe, age, gender, the total number of valid eyeblink responses to the startle probe over the course of the psychophysiology paradigm, and lagtime in days between the survey and psychophysiological assessments in a separate model for each of the psychological well-being dimensions predicting EBR magnitude at the recovery probe.**
B Model includes all of the covariates included in the A models, as well all 6 of the psychological well-being dimensions, trait positive and negative affect, and subjective well-being variables in the same model predicting EBR magnitude at the recovery probe.†
If the one outlier participant on EBR magnitude at recovery is removed from this model, purpose in life significantly predicts EBR magnitude at recovery: β = –0.017, t(216.61) = –2.05, p = 0.04. Even with the outlier removed, none of the other well-being measures significantly predicted EBR recovery.
