Satisfaction with One’s Family Relations
In this chapter MDT is used to explain satisfaction with one’s family relations. In the next section (2.2), I review mean satisfaction scores for the world balanced sample, relatively developed and less developed countries, 39 countries, males and females. In Sections 2.3 and 2.4 family satisfaction is explained by MDT, respectively, for the world balanced sample taken as a whole, and for males and females taken separately. Section 2.5 summarizes results of using MDT to explain family satisfaction in 38 countries, including relatively developed and less developed countries, males and females. In the final section (2.6), MDT’s prediction success ratios are reviewed for all the explanations offered in Section 2.5.
