Sense of coherence (SOC) has been found a negative correlation with depression, and also it has been found a positive correlation with happiness. However, SOC has a positive correlation with generalized self-efficacy (GSE). The relationship between SOC to depression and the happiness, there is a possibility of spurious correlation. The purpose of this study was to examine the relation between SOC, GSE, and sense of basic trust to depression and subjective-happiness-feeling. The data for this analysis was collected by the questionnaire method from 156 university students, and be analyzed by Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). For that result, the effects of GSE and sense of basic trust to depression was mediated by SOC, and the effects of SOC and GSE to subjective-happiness-feeling was mediated by sense of basic trust. From this result, the need to study the theory of SOC has been shown.
