Our instruments were Ryff Well Being Scale, Hexaco-PI-R (100 items version) and for the statistics, we had SPSS. Our sample was composed from 30 participants (15 males and 15 women) with ages between 30 and 40 years old. The target population  were Romanian sailors.

According to the results, we can confirm that there is a significant relationship between personality and wellbeing mood.

So, we notice very significant connections between Autonomy and Openness to Experience, Honesty - Humility, Extraversion and Conscientiousness.
