Max Weber argued that Protestant work ethics(PWE) played an important role in the development of capitalism in the West. Weber's thesis stimulated various research about the relationship between religion and economic attitudes.
The purpose of this paper was to examine relationships and differences between PWE and related variables. A survey questionnaire was used to measure PWE values from Mirels & Garrett(1971)'s PWE scale. The sample is composed of college students.
Results revealed that external locus of control, need for achievement, justice world scale showed significant relationship with PWE characteristics. And there was a considerable difference among social classes, religions, highschool backgrounds in terms of PWE characteristics. The possible reasons for the findings were discussed in the light of previous studies. Also implications, limitations and directions of study were suggested.
