The aim of this study was to examine the self construals in terms of life satisfaction. At the study, there were 394 participants: 147 male and 247 female students at various faculties at Gazi University and Ankara University. Data were taken from Self Construal Scale, and Life Satisfaction Scale and made with SPSS 216.00 for Windows package program. ANOVA, and Ki Square test were used in the analysis of the data. In variables in which significant differences were detected after the analyses, the “Tukey HSD Test” was applied to determine from which variable the difference stemmed. Self Construals were analized as Autonomous-Separete Self, Autonomous-Related Self, Heteronomous-Separete Self, Heteronomous-Related Self. As regards of study findings, the Autonomous-Related Self was the most common one among participants. Significant differences were found on self construals according to gender, residential area and educating department. Life Satisfaction has differed significiantly among self construals. The Autonomous-Related Self has more life satisfaction than Heteronomous-Separate Self. The reliabilty of Self Construal Scale and Life Satisfaction Scale were incorporated to scale knowledge.
