Introduction: The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of redemption narratives on generativity and consequently on psychological well-being in Iranian adults. In addition, the relationship between self-redemption and generativity with psychological well-being was examined separately.
Methods: The study population consisted of all adults aged 22-65 years who had a bachelor's degree or higher and were invited through  cyberspace. Sixty six Iranian adults aged 22-65 years were selected by convenience sampling method. The instruments of this study included McAdams’ life story questionnaire, Loyola Generativity Scale, and Ryff psychological well-being scale. The method of analysis was qualitative-quantitative, which qualitative analysis was thematic and quantitative analysis was Pearson correlation.
Results: The results showed that in the Iranian adult population, there was a positive and significant relationship between the scores of self-redemption and generativity, self-redemption and psychological well-being, and generativity and psychological well-being (P <0.01).
Conclusion: Although there is a positive and significant relationship between self-redemption and generativity, self-redemption and psychological well-being, and generativity and psychological well-being, the Iranian adult population often does not tell their stories in the theme of redemption. They also have low score on the generativity and then they also experience low psychological well-being, resulting from cultural and historical origins.
