The aim of this study is the research of the role that play the psycological resources and historical socioculture premises in determining the quality of life from the personal and subjective well-being. The Study is designed as a non-experimental, transversal and correlational-causal type. The statical sample is conformed from 855 young high school students. The outcomes reveals that there is another set of variables that are involve in the perception of quality of life. The regression equation points out that a set of social personality features contribute to formulate a greater weighting explanation.

So, it is considered a complementary model, and therefore extends the construct explanation.
