ABSTRACT

Materialism being an important component in today’s growing economy has been focused upon in this study. Researchers have studied and defined materialism as the importance of possessions in one’s life or the attachment to worldly possessions. Self-acceptance is majorly a person’s acceptance of his all aspects be it positive or negative.

The relationship between materialism and self-acceptance were also targeted for the study. Results show that on the selected sample, there are gender differences both on materialism and self-acceptance. However, no significant correlation was noted between materialism and self-acceptance.
