自我概念一致性已经被证明对于享乐的和自我实现的幸福感具有促进作用。然而文化可以影响它们之间的关系。西方人崇尚个人主义, 具有独立型自我构念和低水平的辩证思维, 因此他们的自我概念一致性较高, 且对幸福感具有强烈的促进作用。而东方人崇尚集体主义, 具有互依型自我构念和高水平的辩证思维, 因此他们的自我概念一致性较低, 且对幸福感的促进作用微弱。未来的研究需要在特质以外的人格水平上, 检验不同分类标准下的自我概念一致性与文化和多种类型的幸福感间的关系。并且探索文化发挥作用的其他机制, 解析文化与自我概念相互作用, 共同影响幸福感的深层机制。

It has been demonstrated that self-concept consistency improves hedonic and eudaimonic well-being. However, culture may influence the relationship between them. Westerners are not only individualistic but also possess independent self-construal and low-level dialectical thinking. Therefore, their self-concept consistency is high and more predictive of their well-being. In contrast, Easterners are collectivistic, and they tend to have interdependent self-construal and high-level dialectical thinking. In this manner, their self-concept consistency is low and less predictive of their well-being. Future research should be conducted on other levels of personality besides dispositional traits and investigate different kinds of self-concept consistency and well-being. Moreover, they should also explore other cultural factors functioning in this process and investigate the comprehensive mechanism through which self-concept consistency and culture can influence well-being.

Key words: self-concept consistency, well-being, culture
