Abstract

Impact of Culture on the Development of Value Conflict in Emerging Adulthood

Amita Srivastava

This study investigates the role of culture in developing value-conflicts during the early adulthood. A group of 102 university students from Germany and India were selected for this purpose. The value-conflict scale, developed by Bharadwaj, was used for determination of the value conflict amongst the students. It is discerned that there is an existing conflict regarding the values of Pragmatism vs. Idealism and Fear vs. Assertion values in both the students of India and Germany. A significant difference is found between the students of Germany and India with respect to the values of Evasion vs. Fortitude, Dependence vs. Self-reliance and Selfishness vs. Probity value. Students of both the countries fall towards the positive dimension ‘Love’ value, (sten Mean=6.40 and 6.19).
