This study investigated the relationship between six psychological variables and environmentally responsible behavior of Japanese undergraduates, 106 males and 44 females. Their average age was 18.66 with a standard deviation of 1.38. The six variables were attitudes toward growth and technology, efficacy of personal proenvironmental behavior, sensitivity to noise, social awareness, emotional sensitivity and behavioral independence. Multiple regression analysis was conducted for environmentally responsible behavior with the six variables entered simultaneously as predictors. Negative attitudes toward growth and technology, efficacy of personal proenvironmental behavior and emotional sensitivity were significantly related to environmentally responsible behavior. Behavioral independence was marginally related, but sensitivity to noise and social awareness were not related.
