The research subjects were seventy eight college students. Their age was between twenty oneto thirty years old. Assessment tools used were Depressive Experiences Questionnaire, Me Consciousness - We Consciousness Scale and Happiness Scale. The research had three questions. Question 1. Does subjectivity - relatedness have a mediating effect on depression and happiness? Question 2. Does subjectivity have a mediating effect on depression and happiness? Question 3.

The results indicate that subjectivity-relatedness as well as subjectivity and relatedness individually have a mediating effect on depression and happiness.
