Materialism in Adolescence: the Effect of Violent Media

This research examines the effect of violent media exposure on materialistic value in adolescents. We found that anxiety triggered by violent media exposure leads to a higher materialistic value in adolescents with interdependent self-construal than independent self-construal. We collect data from Thailand (the interdependent-self) and the United States (the independent-self).
