The present study will investigate the relationship between self- compassion, narcissism and decision making in young adults. Cross sectional research design will be used in the study. It was hypothesized that self-compassion and narcissism would predict decision making in young adults. The sample will comprised of 200 young adults, (N = 200) including 100 male and 100 female university students with age range 20-to 25 years from university students. The Self-Compassion Scale, Narcissistic Personality Inventory and Decision Making Style Inventory were used to investigate the relationship. The data was analyzed through SPSS. The present study findings revealed that self-compassion was positive predictor of decision making styles (sequential, logical, and global) but not the predictor of personable decision making style. The study is likely to have important implications in student counseling services and for clinical researcher.
