This study examined the relationship between assertiveness and satisfaction with life among Malaysian secondary school students. A set of questionnaires, including the assertiveness scale and the Satisfaction with Life scale, was used to measure participants’ level of assertiveness and satisfaction with life. This study included 1,392 high school students, 15 to 16 years old, randomly selected from the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Data analysis indicated that respondents’ assertiveness level was high but their satisfaction with life was average. Female students showed higher assertiveness scores than male students. The findings also demonstrated no significant difference in satisfaction with life according to gender. A significant relationship was found between assertiveness and satisfaction with life. The implications of this study toward secondary school students, especially in the implementation of counseling programs, are discussed in this study.
