In this study, the relationship of religiosity, which is the most important concept of the psychology of religion, with self-actualization and life satisfaction is discussed. Religion is seen as related to both life satisfaction and self-actualization due to its features such as directing people's life, giving meaning, contributing to social and individual development. In this study, whether there is a relationship between the three variables, and if so, in what direction this relationship is, was handled with the correlational model. The sample of the study consists of Turkish adults over the age of 18. Participants were selected by simple random sampling method. The Islamic Religiousness Scale, Personal Orientation Inventory and Life Satisfaction Scale were used in the research as Turkish, and then the relationship between the three variables was analyzed in the light of the obtained data. According to the results, while there is no significant relationship between religiosity and self-actualization scores, there is a positive correlation between life satisfaction and self-actualization and life satisfaction and religiosity. In addition, it has been determined that the relationship between religiosity and self-actualization differs according to various variables.
