The satisfaction of basic psychological needs autonomy, competence, and relatedness were examined in relation to indices of subjective well-being life satisfaction, positive affect, and negative affect. The participants were Filipino adolescents in grades 7 to 10 in two junior high schools. The research used a non-experimental, predictive, cross-sectional design utilizing correlations and multiple linear regression. The findings revealed that basic psychological need satisfaction is related to the indices of subjective well-being. The regression analysis showed that the satisfaction of basic psychological needs positively predicts life satisfaction and positive affect, while only the satisfaction of the needs for autonomy and competence negatively predicted negative affect. The satisfaction of the need for relatedness in relation to predicting negative affect did not yield significant results. The implications of the findings of this research provides more insight into different factors that affect the well-being of adolescent that may be used to develop programs and adjustments to support the satisfaction of basic psychological needs.
