Abstract
Adolescence, a transitional phase marked by changes in life and consolidation of previous knowledge resulting in the formation of ego identity, is associated with the fixing of goals and therefore determining achievement motivation of a person. The tendency to set goals and strive for success is influenced by a number of social and psychological factors. The current study aims to examine the relationship of achievement motivation with psychological wellbeing in the adolescents of Kashmir. A sample of 210 was taken purposively from the four major districts of Kashmir. Participants completed the sample survey packets comprising of “Deo Mohan achievement motivation scale (Deo & Mohan, 2002)”, and “Ryff’s psychological wellbeing test (Ryff, 1995)”. Results revealed a significant positive correlation between psychological wellbeing and achievement motivation. The results of this study can have implications for educationalists to bring changes and policies so as to enhance the achievement motivation and psychological wellbeing by improving the system.
