On the basis of the theoretical principles of existential analysis, particularly logotherapy, an attempt has been made to analyze the relation of a meaningful existence, personality factors and subjectively perceived self-esteem. An investigation into mutual relations between personality factors, existential characteristics and subjectively perceived self-esteem, carried out on a sample of 60 male respondents (30 students of theology and 30 current respondents), revealed that the level of self-esteem negatively correlates with that of the personality factor Neuroticism, and positively with the level of Extraversion, Conscientiousness, the existential characteristics Personality, Existentiality and the overall ESK scores. Personality and Existentiality showed a statistically significant positive correlation with the factors Extraversion, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness, similarly as also did the overall ESK scores which, in addition, showed a significant negative correlation with Neuroticism. The results obtained brought support to the presumed relations among existential characteristics, personality factors and self-esteem.
