The purpose of the study was to examine the the predictive power of authenticity on emotional well-being (positive-negative affect) among Turkish and English university students. The study consisted of two groups of student participants. The first group involved 108 (56 males and 52 females) Turkish university students from Gazi University. Foreign students were not included in this group. The second group comprised 90 (39 males and 51 females) English university students from Middlesex University. Positive- Negative Affect Scale, Authenticity Inventory, and Personal Information Form were used as data collection tools. Results showed that both Turkish and English university students’ positive and negative affect were significantly and independently predicted by authenticity. English university students’ authenticity and negative affect scores were found to be higher than Turkish students’ scores. The result showed that there was no difference in terms of authenticity and positive-negative affect among females and males. However, a comparison between the females and males of Turkish and English university students indicated that both Turkish females and males had lower authenticity and negative affect scores compared to their English counterparts. For positive affect, no such difference was observed. These findings were discussed in relation to the study’s limitations, previous studies and culture dimension. It is considered that the results will contribute to the psychological counselors who want to prepare a counseling program on affective well-being and to the researchers who want to examine other possible dynamics of cultural difference (education system, national politics, economic development, urbanization, migration, intercultural interaction, beliefs, parental attitudes, etc.)
