Abstract (150 Words)

Self-congruity theory has been used to predict tourists' satisfaction with a destination by relating the destination's image to an individual's self-constructs. This research will examine the possible relationship between residents' self-congruity with the destination image and their quality of life. It will also explore the possible effects a disparity between a resident's self-congruity with the destination image and their self-congruity with their perception of tourists may have on their quality of life.
