Materialism, subjective well-being and psychological entitlement: Interplay between materialism and social functioning

Magdalena Żemojtel-Piotrowska , Jarosław Piotrowski , Amanda Clinton


In the current paper, the relationship between materialistic aspirations (fame, money and image) and psychological entitlement (active, passive and revenge) is examined. Addition- ally, the possible mediating role of hedonic and eudaimonic well-being are considered. SEM analysis conducted on Polish students sample (n = 153) revealed that materialism was posi- tively related to psychological entitlement. The relationship between materialism and active entitlement was partially mediated by higher hedonic well-being, the relationship between passive entitlement and materialism was fully mediated by higher social well-being and the relationship between revenge entitlement and materialism was direct and unmediated by subjective well-being. These findings are discussed in reference to the culture of materialism and narcissism in relation to Central and East European (CEEU) cultural context
