The aim of this study was to determine the relationships among styles of coping with stress, decision self-esteem, decision-making styles and life satisfaction. The sample consisted of 492 university students. Life satisfaction was found to be positively correlated to problem-focused coping and seeking social support. It was also found that life satisfaction is significantly correlated to decision self-esteem and all decision-making styles (vigilance, buckpassing, procrastination, and hypervigilance). In addition, significant relationships were found among coping with stress, decision self-esteem and decision-making styles.
