Abstract: The study investigated the interrelationships between psychological variables such as Stressful life event, Self-esteem, Life satisfaction and Inner meaning fulfilment (IMF) among students of the University of Ibadan. There were eight hundred and eight five (885) participants with 449 (50.7%) males and 436 (49.3%) females. The mean age for the participants was 26.2 years with a standard deviation of 6.0 and age range from 15 - 60 years. The IMF scale (Logo test), which is in form of a questionnaire, was used for the data collection. Inter - correlation of the variables was conducted using the Pearson product correlation to test the three predictor variables which were significantly related to inner meaning fulfilment except the life satisfaction, (r = .06) was not significant. Self-esteem had a positive significant correlation with IMF (r = .18) although a negative relationship was expected while in life stressful event (r - 13) a negative correlation was found with IMF scale. Based on these findings a further research with those predictor variables with inner meaning fulfilment needs to be conducted in order to verify those issues raised in this study.
