Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Much of the debate over corruption has focused on the role of various psychological, economic, political factors. As it is shown in the overview of the current tendencies in research, there is a variety of models explaining the phenomenon of corruption. The presented study aimed at evaluating psychological profiles (emotions, satisfaction with various life domains) of people, stating that they have often experienced corruption. This paper presents some results of the survey, which was conducted in 2014 in Lithuania (n=1002). The analysis of Lithuanian data has demonstrated that the higher are rates of corruption experience, the higher is satisfaction with life in Lithuania as well as satisfaction with the financial situation, consuming possibilities, etc. The authors come to the conclusion that these results could be named "paradox of Lithuanian residents' corruption experience and satisfaction with life". The authors indicate that additional research is needed.
