The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship between Imaginary Control of Internal States, imaginary Stress and Intuitive-Rational Information processing styles and also determine contribution of these variables in prediction of depression and life satisfaction among students.

Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 241 students of humanity sciences (168 females and 73 males) from Payame Noor University–Tabriz branch were randomly selected, using stratified and multiple stage cluster sampling. Imaginary control of internal states, information processing styles, imaginary stress, depression and life satisfaction questionnaires were completed by these students. The Pearson’s correlation test and multiple linear regression analysis were used to analyze the collected data.

Results: The results showed that there is positive and significant correlation between intuitive and rational information processing style and imaginary control of internal states with life satisfaction, but the relationship between imaginary stress and life satisfaction were significantly negative (p<0.001). There was significantly negative correlation between rational information processing style and imaginary control of internal states with depression, but relationship between depression and imaginary stress were positive (p<0.001). Results of multiple linear regression analysis showed that imaginary control of internal states and imaginary stress variables are significant predictors of depression and life satisfaction (p<0.050).

Conclusion: The present finding emphases on the importance of imaginary control of internal states and imaginary stress in prediction of psychological wellbeing like, life satisfaction and depression.
