Abstract (2. Language): 
In this study, the relations between happiness and self-criticism were aimed to investigate. 222 students between the ages of 19-28 from Sakarya University (145 female/77 male) participated in the study. Oxford Happiness Scale-short form (1) and Self-criticism Scale (2) were used in the study. The analyses showed that there were significant negative relations between self-criticism and happiness. Besides, the sub-dimensions of self-criticism were found to predict happiness negatively. The findings were discussed in the light of the related literature.
