Abstract
This study aimed to explore the relationship between online game addiction, psychological well-being and self-discipline. The research methodology is a quantitative approach with a correlational descriptive type. The samples used were 1046 high school students in Central Java. The Instruments used were the Psychological Well-Being Scale, Neo-PI Self-Discipline Scale, and Game Online Addiction Scale. Data were analysed using descriptive statistical techniques and multiple regression. The results showed psychological well-being and self-discipline simultaneously had a negative correlation with online game addiction. The analysis result also shows the percentage effect of psychological well-being and self-discipline on online game addiction. Then it is known psychological well-being has a negative effect on online game addiction. The same results were also shown for self-discipline variables which negatively affected online game addiction. An interesting profile has emerged from the results of this study, suggesting that certain psychological characteristics such as psychological well-being and self-discipline may predispose some individuals to become addicted to online games. This result will provide basic information that can contribute to developing a prevention program for students who are addicted to online games.
