Abstract

The elderly period commonly brings the new problem for individuals in his elderly period and his environment. This study was conducted to get an overview of the amount of subjective well-being, religiosity, and personality trait in the elderly. The subjects in this study were 226 (women n = 136) elderly aged 60 to 74 years who lived near South Jakarta, East Jakarta, and Ciputat. Data collection was done in the form of inventories those suitable for research subjects’ characteristics and using a Likert scale. Based on each dimension categorization, the research variables are mostly at the medium level. The research respondents’ religiosity is high only in religious practice dimension, while in other dimensions are in the medium and low category. This shows that they consider religious belief and spiritual experience as a normative thing, which possibly causes them to not feel that their well-being is affected by their religious activities.
