This study examined the role of Psychological Well-being, Spirituality, Subjective happiness, and satisfaction with life on the Psychopathic traits of an individual. The objective of the study was to compare the role of psychopathic traits, Psychological Well-being, Spirituality, Subjective happiness, and Satisfaction with life in individuals who have been sentenced to imprisonment (criminals). The importance of this study is, to find out whether the lack of Psychological Well-being, Subjective Happiness, Spirituality, and Satisfaction with life can predict Psychopathic traits. The recent findings show that there is a negative correlation between Psychological Well- being, Subjective Happiness, Spirituality, and Satisfaction with life and Psychopathic traits. This study was conducted using data collected from 101 prisoners from the central jail in Uttarakhand with ages ranging from 20 to 40 years. After reviewing the institutional background, a purposive sampling method was used to select the sample from the population and a cross-sectional survey research method was conducted on a closed-ended questionnaire and the response is taken on a Likert scale. Theoretical and practical implications of the results show that there is a weak negative correlation between Psychopathic traits with Spiritual Experience, Satisfaction with Life, and Subjective Happiness, and a strong positive correlation with Psychological Well Being. And Psychological Well Being is the significant predictor variable of Psychopathic traits as Dependent Variable.
