Relevance of the study
Considering previous studies, analyzing the complex predictors of life satisfaction such as;
perceived stress, emotional intelligence, and self-esteem, it is important to note the limitations in the
Emotional Intelligence literature in that the majority of the studies were conducted within different
Western or Asian countries. This study will therefore contribute to such existing publications and as
such, can arouse further curiosity and investigation among researchers of the same phenomena. Also,
testing these predictions in Nigerian culture would add meaningful evidence for practice and reduce
cultural bias.
Moreover, at the end of this study, one would have the knowledge of the various psychological
factors predicting life satisfaction as stated in this study, to check the psychological effects meted on
an individual‟s (student‟s) state of happiness or satisfaction with life, and where necessary, sensitize
clinicians and/or counseling psychologists [especially in the academic settings] as to help break the
barriers that hamper life satisfaction in the society at large.
