Background
In their conception of well-being, Waterman et al. refer to the eudaimonist philosophy in which well-being is the active development of human best potentials and perceiving them as personally expressive.

Participants and procedure
The main objective of the present research was to determine the psychometric properties of the Polish adaptation of the Questionnaire for Eudaimonic Well-Being (QEWB) and to verify the structure of the construct. Four studies were performed with a total of 2273 participants. The psychometric properties of the Polish adaptation of the QEWB were proven. To verify the factorial structure, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis was used, as well as exploratory structural equation modeling. The factor analysis showed that although assessing the general score of the QEWB is justified, the three-factorial structure fit best (CFI from .929 to .963 and RMSEA from .038 to .052 in all four studies). The criterion validity of the three factors was tested using the Mental Health Continuum-Short Form (MHC-SF), measures of procrastination (PPS, NAPS), personality traits (IPIP-BMF-20) and grit (Grit-S).

Results
The results confirm the factorial structure of eudaimonic well-being reported in the literature, which is not fully compatible with the originally described structure.

Conclusions
The current study showed the importance of considering eudaimonic well-being as a multidimensional and multifactorial construct.
