The study was carried out on a sample of 506 prep-school students from Baskent University. The students were asked to fill out Wellness Inventory and the demographic data sheet. In order to investigate the differences between wellness sub-scales̕ scores (Relational Self, Social Interest and Empathy, Self Consistency, Mastery Orientation, Physical Wellness, Humor, Love, and Environmental Sensitivity) of the subjects with respect to gender, relationship status, place of residence, and GPA; four separate MANOVA̕s were conducted. The results of this study revealed significant gender differences in self-consistency, love, environmental sensitivity sub-scales̕ scores in favor of male students, but in social interest and empathy sub-scales in favor of female students.

The results also revealed that students, whose GPA ranged between 90-100, scored significantly higher on mastery orientation sub-scale of Wellness Inventory than students, whose GPA level ranged between 50-70 and below 50.
