Summary

A comparative study of value orientations among Finnish and Chinese adolescents was conducted focusing on how secondary school students in these two cultures understand the purpose and meaningfulness of their lives and the value purposes they foresee in the future. The survey took place in the comprehensive schools of suburban towns in Finland and China. The 342 Finnish and 183 Chinese students were all in grade 9. Data came from the Purpose in Life Test (J. Crumbaugh and L. Maholik, 1969, as modified by H. Niemie (1987), Deans Alienation Scale (D. Dean 1961, as modified by Niemie, 1987), and a value purpose questionnaire developed for the study. Results reveal the different cultural orientations of the two societies. In Finland, young people have a very individualistic view of their lives and seem very self-regulated and self-determined. In social issues, they are less empowered than Chinese teenagers, who grow up in a society in which family and collective values are emphasized. Some limitations of the study, in terms of translation and student age, are discussed. Three appendixes contain three tables of study data. (Contains 9 tables and 25 references.) (SLD)
