Abstract: The purpose of this study was to validate the flourishing-in-life scale proposed by Po-Lin Chen and Min-Ning Yu. To this end, the equivalences between factor loadings and differences in the scale’s results for various stages of adulthood were examined. Data were collected from a sample of 1,023 adults between the ages of 21 and 65. The sample data were used in confirmatory factor and cross-validation analyses to assess the factor structure of the scale. The findings are summarized as follows. (1) The results of the confirmatory factor analysis indicated that flourishing life was based on five latent factors: “benevolence blessing - positive emotions,” “playfulness blessing - engagement,” “harmony blessing - identify meaning,” “respectful blessing - competent requirements,” and “optimism blessing - optimistic attitude.” (2) The cross-validation analysis with split-half samples verified that the scale was a wellconstructed and stable model; the factor structure was a good fit for the empirical data and was invariant across grade levels. (3) A U-type distribution was observed in the flourishing-in-life results. Specifically, adults in later adulthood were associated with higher average grades than individuals in other stages of adulthood in the categories of “flourishing in life,” “benevolence blessing - positive emotions,” and “playfulness blessing - engagement.” This paper concludes by proposing several suggestions for future studies.
