POSTMODERN AND MODERN VALUE ORIENTATIONS AND LIFE SATISFACTION AMONG HONG KONG CHINESE
Abstract:Despite incidents about postmodernization in Hong Kong society, the significance of post-modernization is uncharted. If postmodernization is significant, it will particularly satisfy people with greater orientation to postmodern values. This study examines the hypothesis by conducting a survey in 2000 of a random sample of the adult population in Hong Kong, China. Results indicate that those with higher postmodern value orientations were less satisfied in 2000. These findings do not demonstrate the significance of postmodernization in Hong Kong. Thus, Hong Kong may not be sufficiently postmodern even though some of its inhabitants hold high orientation to postmodern values.
