dc.description Thesis (M.A., Psychology (Industrial/Organizational Psychology))--California State University, Sacramento, 2017. en_US
dc.description.abstract The relationships between mindfulness, boredom proneness, sexual satisfaction, positive and negative affect, basic needs satisfaction, and meaning in life were investigated (data from 265 university students). A correlational analysis demonstrated that lower levels of boredom proneness were associated with higher levels of mindfulness, positive affect, basic needs satisfaction, meaning in life (Presence), and sexual satisfaction. Three components, labeled Mindful Engagement, Sexual Satisfaction, and Exploration, were identified through principal components analysis and accounted for 62% of variance. It was speculated that Mindful Engagement would directly predict Exploration and indirectly predict Exploration with the latent mediation variable of Sexual Satisfaction. Results of a structural analysis run with the components yielded a suppression effect, suggesting that Mindful Engagement is predictive of Exploration and that the suppressor, Sexual Satisfaction, is not particularly useful in predicting Exploration but correlates with Mindful Engagement and accounts for some of the variance explained by that predictor. en_US
