Abstract

This study explores the relationship of remembered socio-historical events with well-being. Its objective is to know the content of historical memory and the way in which it is associated with this construct. The PHI remembered well-being scale and the CEVI instrument, which asks to describe four relevant historical events during the person's life, were applied to a convenience sample from the Basque Country (N = 434, range 20-88 years, M = 48.11 SD = 21.47, 59.2% women). Negative and local events predominated. Positive appraisal of historical events was positively related to personal, hedonic, and social well-being, and negative appraisal was positively related to lower well-being, confirming the greater importance of positive recall for well-being. A stronger relationship of recall of historical events, particularly positives, was observed with the hedonic and social facets of well-being than with the personal well-being.
