Abstract

A survey of 500 Chinese residents in the casino city of Macau assessed several social and personality variables (family emotional support, neuroticism, gregariousness, paranormal beliefs, the illusion of control, Chinese values, and financial security) for their relationships with gambling attitudes and behaviors, which, in turn, were tested for their relationships with esteem from others, coworker support, and life satisfaction. Gambling attitudes were positively associated with neuroticism, gregariousness, paranormal beliefs, and the illusion of control, and negatively with Chinese values. Gambling behavior was positively associated with neuroticism and the illusion of control, negatively with esteem from others, family support, and Chinese values, and was a negative predictor of coworker support and life satisfaction. Results are discussed in terms of interpersonal relationships in Chinese culture.
