This article presents the results of a study that combines consideration of widely known concepts (happiness, subjective well-being) with the phenomena of self-compassion and subjective vitality (as dispositions) that are relatively new for Russian psychological thought. A close connection of these parameters is postulated. The analysis of these phenomena in different age groups (adolescence (71 people); youth (48 people); adulthood (37 people), old age (10 people); the total number of respondents is 166 people). The empirical study was carried out using test methods and various criteria for statistical data processing (descriptive statistics, Kruskal–Wallis test, Spearman's test). Correlation analysis showed a different number of relationships of the studied parameters in different age groups, and a decrease in the number of relationships with an increase in the age of the respondents was noted. Significant differences were revealed in indicators of subjective well-being, self-compassion and subjective vitality (as dispositions) in different age groups. We found especially striking differences in the groups of elderly and adolescent people. The practical significance of the results appears in the possibility of their use in the counselling and training work of psychologists.
