In an attempt to settle the debate on the relationship between maximization and well-being, a sub-group meta-analysis was conducted, accounting for well-being dimension valence (positive or negative). Findings revealed maximization is detrimental to well-being regardless of the dimension valence, but is moderated by the maximization scale and by long-term orientation.
