Sahranç, Ümit
Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n10 p1442-1448 May 2015
The purpose of this study is to examine the predictive role of self-compassion on psychological entitlement. Participants were 331 university students (205 women, 126 men, M age = 20.5 years.). In this study, the Self-compassion Scale and the Psychological Entitlement Scale were used to assess self-compassion and psychological entitlement. The relationships between self-compassion and psychological entitlement were examined using correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis. Data were analyzed by SPSS 11.5. In Correlation analysis, mindfulness, common humanity, and self-kindness factors of self-compassion were found negatively and over-identification, isolation, and self-judgment factors of self-compassion were found positively related to psychological entitlement. According to regression results, psychological entitlement was predicted positively by over-identification, isolation, and self-judgment. Further mindfulness and self-kindness predicted psychological entitlement in a negative way. Self-compassion has explained 28% of the variance in psychological entitlement.
