Sažetak
The aim of the study was to explore the differences in the occurrence and evaluations of life events that antecede extreme alterations in flourishing in one-year time. Study was conducted as a part of the Croatian longitudinal well-being study funded by Croatian Science Foundation. Studied variables were flourishing assessed at two time points (1-year interval) as a measure of wellbeing, life events experienced between the two time points, evaluations of positivity and negativity of experienced events and demographic variables. Out of total N=2465 who completed both initial survey (2016=T1) and the 1st follow up (2017=T2) we selected two extreme groups of participants with biggest change in flourishing from T1 to T2. Group 1 consisted of 5.6% of participants with biggest drop in flourishing (N= 138, flourishing change: M=-13.79, SD=4.39), while Group 2 consisted of 5% of participants with biggest improvement in flourishing (N= 123, flourishing change: M=12.76, SD=4.15). At time 1, Group 1 showed significantly higher levels of flourishing compared to Group 2 (∆M= 12.13, t(246)= 13.74, p=.00). At T2 Group 2 showed higher results at flourishing compared to group 1 (∆M= -14.83, t(246)=-16.78, p=.00). In both groups majority of participants were women, with at least high school diploma, half of them where married. Participants in Group 1 more often had kids (χ²(2)=10.3, p=.00) and were on average 5.6 years older (t(246)=3.5, p=.00). Regarding experienced life events, Group 1 experienced on average 6.67 of all events, compared to Group 2 with 8.54 events on average. If top 10 events are taken into consideration, group 1 experienced six positive events, two negative events and two ambivalent. Group 2 experienced eight positive events and two ambivalent. Additionally, two groups did not differ in average positivity of experienced events (F(1)=0.45, p>.05) or average negativity (F(1)=0.34, p>.05), but group 1 rated positive events more negative (F(1)=7.11, p<.05) compared to group 2. Results are discussed in the framework of broaden-and-build theory.
