Abstract

This research was held to describe materialism among Indonesian adolescent through a qualitative approach. Preliminary studies conducted by researcher was to collect data and categorize it. Data was taken from 30 adolescents aged 13-14 years old. The results of the preliminary study showed that most adolescents were at a moderate level of materialism. The main study used a qualitative method – interviews. The interviews were conducted on two 14-year-old adolescents who described the three dimensions of materialism consisted of happiness based on material ownership (happiness), success was measured materially (success), and the center of activity was obtaining material/goods (centrality). The results also showed that materialism arose from the observations on media information such as advertisements on television. Therefore, the dominance of materialism could be lowered due to a sense of gratitude and self-acceptance.
