This study was carried out to explore the relationship between decision-making styles and subjective well-being among officers of Rajasthan Administrative Services. Administrative officers encounter various stressors within their work environment, which involves navigating complex situations related to public welfare, consequently presenting them with opportunities to exhibit their decision-making styles. The sample consisted of 30 RAS officers (15 males & 15 females) in the age range 30-45 years (mean age 38.6) with a minimum work experience of 5 years selected from the Jaipur district. Data were collected by using General Decision making style Questionnaire (Scott & Bruce, 1995) and Subjective Well-being Scale by Sell and Nagpal. The results revealed that rational style had a significant positive correlation with subjective well-being among male RAS officers, whereas in female RAS officers, both rational and intuitive styles had a significant positive relationship. Avoidant style was significantly negatively related to subjective well-being in male officers. In contrast, dependent and spontaneous style in decision-making had a non-significant relationship with subjective well-being among both male and female officers.

Abstract


This study was carried out to explore the relationship between decision-making styles and subjective well-being among officers of Rajasthan Administrative Services. Administrative officers encounter various stressors within their work environment, which involves navigating complex situations related to public welfare, consequently presenting them with opportunities to exhibit their decision-making styles. The sample consisted of 30 RAS officers (15 males & 15 females) in the age range 30-45 years (mean age 38.6) with a minimum work experience of 5 years selected from the Jaipur district. Data were collected by using General Decision making style Questionnaire (Scott & Bruce, 1995) and Subjective Well-being Scale by Sell and Nagpal. The results revealed that rational style had a significant positive correlation with subjective well-being among male RAS officers, whereas in female RAS officers, both rational and intuitive styles had a significant positive relationship. Avoidant style was significantly negatively related to subjective well-being in male officers. In contrast, dependent and spontaneous style in decision-making had a non-significant relationship with subjective well-being among both male and female officers.
