The purpose of this study was to find out the life satisfaction experienced by individuals who experience dwarfism in young adult. Life satisfaction is explored through its aspects, which refers to the desire to change lives, current, past, and future satisfaction, also about other people's appraisement. In addition, it was discussed in depth about the factors that influence life satisfaction in dwarfism. The research method used is qualitative, by deep interviewing to dwarfism with different backgrounds of life. Data analysis used was discourse analysis using interpretative validation. The result showed that the background of life can affect the life satisfaction of dwarfism. The factor of balance of hope and achievement also determined the depiction of life satisfaction in dwarfism. The background of life led to life satisfaction factors, to obtain a conception of life satisfaction and then the perceived life satisfaction had an impact on the subject's self-adjustment which later could be constructive or destructive.
