Abstract

The study is intended to investigate the significant difference between participants based on their educational qualification, below graduation and above graduation, on Prosocial Behavior and Rejection Sensitivity of Indian expatriates in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E). The sample of 202 Indian expatriates from U.A.E were collected through simple random sampling method. The instruments administered were Prosocial Personality Battery (Penner, Fritzsche, Craiger & Freifeld, 1995), Rejection Sensitivity RS-Adult questionnaire (A-RSQ), (Berenson, et.al. 2009). The data obtained was subjected to SPSS analysis and the statistical technique used was Pearson correlation coefficient. The result revealed that educational status bears no significant role on one’s Rejection Sensitivity and Prosocial behavior except other oriented moral reasoning and mutual concern moral reasoning dimensions of prosocial behaviour. Participants have above graduation significantly scored high other moral reasoning and mutual concern moral reasoning than participants have below graduation qualification. The study outcome would be of great importance to seek for more psychosocial variables, if any, which can contribute to the evident nature of helping behavior among expatriates.
