The study examines the relationships between the individual attitudes toward group such as the affective interdependence and institutional interdependence, and different measures of SWB in the highly group-oriented and collectivistic Singapore. The mediating roles of interdependent self-concepts such as the collective self and relational self were examined.The findings were such that affective interdependence and subjective well-being are positively correlated and that institutional interdependence and subjective well-being are negatively but weakly correlated. Collective self was found to be a significant mediator of both the former and the latter relationships whereas relational self was a significant mediator for only the relationship between the institutional interdependence and subjective well-being.
