Study Hypotheses H1. It will turn out that interpersonal rejection has a negative relationship with loneliness. H2. Interpersonal misperception in individuals will cause a negative relationship with loneliness. H3. An individual’s experience of community unrealistic relationship expectations will positively be associated with loneliness. H4. The relationship between loneliness and life satisfaction will be negative. H5. Loneliness has a mediation effect in the association between interpersonal cognitive distortions and life satisfaction A simple random sampling technique, which is among the random sampling techniques, was used in the sampling stage. We sent an invitation to more than 1500 people in Istanbul. Interested participants could click on the link in the invitation to be directed to the survey’s website. To test our hypotheses, 1039 people residing within the borders of Istanbul province participated in this research. However, due to the incomplete and careless filling of the questionnaires by the participants, 61 people were excluded from the data analysis, and 978 people were analyzed.
Steps to reproduce
All data analysis of this study was performed with the help of SPSS 22 and AMOS 23 software. Pearson correlation technique was used to measure the correlation between variables. To survey the hypothesis and the structural model were employed the chi-square/degrees of freedom (x2/ df), root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA), the goodness of fit index (GFI), the comparative fit index (CFI), and the Tucker Lewis index (TLI). In this study, the structural equation model was tested using the maximum likelihood technique and was used the path analysis technique within the framework of structural equation modelling. In this study, the structural equation model was tested using the maximum likelihood technique and was used the path analysis method within the framework of structural equation modelling. Furthermore, PROCESS proposed by Hayes (2013) was applied to examine the mediating effect of loneliness between interpersonal cognitive distortions and life satisfaction.
