Abstract:

Using the Chinese version of Rosenberg's (1965) Self-Esteem Scale we explored the effects of self-esteem level on risk preference in 2 tasks, based on the exchange theory of money and self-esteem in decision making, within the Chinese cultural context. The results showed that participants with moderate self-esteem had the highest risk preference.
