Altruism, Self-Efficacy, Young Adults


Altruistic abilities that enable a person to help others selflessly and self-efficacy beliefs that one has about one’s altruistic abilities greatly influence the kind of person they become. In this study, using convenience sampling method, a sample of 70 young adults from different cities in India, which included 35 males and 35 females, responded to measures of altruism and self-efficacy. The results were then computed to determine the relationship between altruism and self-efficacy among young adults. It was found that the low positive correlation was not statistically significant to be able to say that there is a relationship between the two variables. However, compassion training programs, meditation practices, interpersonal interventions and the like could be employed in order to improve altruism and self-efficacy among the population under study.
