|Title:||Social responsibility in times of quarantine : relating cultural orientations and self-concepts to outbreak containment efforts.||Authors:||Chong, Winnie Huijun.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences::Psychology::Ethics||Issue Date:||2011||Abstract:||Quarantine is an important preventive measure implemented during times of outbreak and it is necessary for quarantined individuals to keep quarantine for successful outbreak containment. This study proposes a model that explains the relationship between cultural orientation, social responsibility, self-concept and the keeping of quarantine in Singapore. A survey was administered to 80 respondents. It was found that respondents with high horizontal collectivistic orientations placed a high value on social responsibility. Respondents who placed high values on social responsibility and those who had high collective self-aspects were more likely to keep quarantine if placed under one. Results further suggest that the social responsibility value and collective self-aspect interact significantly when predicting quarantine keeping.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/43683||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
