Abstract

In the present study, we examined for ethnocultural differences in how a variety of Asian American culturally relevant values predict meaning in life in a sample of 107 Asian American and 131 European American college students. Results indicated that the set of values as a whole only predicted a significant amount of variance for meaning in life for Asian American college students. As individual predictors, emotional self-control inversely predicted meaning in life for both Asian American and European American college students, the value of humility positively predicted meaning in life for Asian Americans, and the value of respect for family positively predicted meaning in life for European Americans. Some implications of the present findings are discussed.
