A major focus of attention in psychology has been on the consequences and determinants of well-being. Religiosity and personality have both been shown to predict well-being and mental health, but the two predictors have not often been investigated together. The relations among well-being outcomes and motives, religiosity, and personality factors were investigated in a Malay muslim context. 255 volunteer university students completed satisfaction with life scale, subjective happiness scale, rosenberg’s self-esteem scale, hedonic and eudaimonic motives for activities, religious orientation scale-revised, gratitude toward God questionnaire, and the 60-item honesty–humility, emotionality, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness personality inventory-revised. The data were analyzed using the statistics such as partial correlation, and hierarchical regression. Results showed that religiosity measures were associated with higher levels of honesty–humility, conscientiousness, agreeableness, happiness, life satisfaction, self-esteem, and a eudaimonic way of living. Religiosity had null or weak relationships with well-being outcomes and motives, beyond broad personality factors. Religiosity and honesty-humility may be relatively more important for eudaimonia than for hedonia.
