Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine associations between gender, place of origin and superstitious beliefs. Twenty-five graduate students in one public university in Bangkok were gathered for data collection through a self-administrated questionnaire. Superstitious beliefs were confined to car color and number superstitions. To test research hypothesis, Pearson’s Chi-Square test was used. Results indicated that there was no statistically significant association between gender and superstitious beliefs. Additionally, no statistically significant relationship between place of origin and superstitious beliefs was found. Sample size expansion was recommended for a further study.
