There was a growing evidence that self-compassion plays an important predictor of well-being. The current study aims to examine the link between self-compassion and subjective well-being (SWB) with culture as a moderator variable. The respondents of this study were students (N = 1161, 354 male and 807 female) from three main tribes in Sulawesi, Indonesia, namely Bugis (n = 379), Makassar (n = 570) and Mandar (n = 212). This research uses the subjective well being scale (Cronbach’s α 0.839) as well as the Positive and Negative affect scale expanded form (PANAS-X) (Cronbach’s α 0.742 and 0.859). This study replicates previous research, self-compassion were associated with SWB. However, these finding was consistent only for Bugis and Makassar respondents. Additionally, for Bugis and Mandar participants, self-compassion has a positive and significant correlation with cognitive SWB, while self-compassion for Makassar participants has a positive and significant correlation with emotional SWB. Lastly, there were differences in SWB between Bugis, Makassar and Mandar. Cognitive SWB is higher in Makassar respodents than Bugis and Mandar, while Bugis is higher in emotion SWB than others. This study has implications on further research to find out what factors cause SWB to differ in tribes in Sulawesi.
