Abstract

Prevention and eradication of corruption which becomes increasingly complex requires a multidiscipline approach; one of which is a psychological approach. It is often debated whether salary and family situation, as well as the way individuals place themselves in the relational context between self and others, influence individuals’ moral emotions (corruption tendency). This research aimed to address that question by using a quantitative, predictive correlational design. Participants of this study were 308 civil servants and private employees (151 males, 158 females; Mage = 29.95 years old; SDage = 8.90 years). Multiple linear regression analysis of survey questionnaire data showed that there are variations in the direction and predictive power in correlational relationship between predictors (income sufficiency, family self-sufficiency, and selflessness) and criteria (moral emotions) of individuals.

Keywords: moral psychology, emotion, corruption, sufficiency, selflessness
