Abstract

Attitude toward money and monetary behavior are formed in vivo under the influence of socio-economic and personal factors. The article raises the problem of the need to study the attitude to money and the monetary behavior of individuals with delinquent behavior. The authors consider the phenomenon of deviant and delinquent behavior. The study reveals the basic concepts of the psychology of money: attitude toward money and monetary behavior. The authors note the interrelation of economic accentuation of a personality and monetary pathological (criminal and non-criminal) behavior. The goal of the paper is to identify special aspects of the attitude to money and the monetary behavior of individuals with delinquent behavior.

The study engaged 64 respondents living in the city of Ulyanovsk who committed criminal offenses and were released on parole, having a sentence of restraint of liberty or administrative arrest, and persons in prison in the Ulyanovsk region. Based on the results of the study, the authors identified that there is a general trend in monetary relations typical for all delinquent persons: money is perceived as a means of providing household life. In the situation of lack of money, they are focused on actions to obtain them. The study established that the features of monetary relations and monetary behavior are due to the type of deviant behavior. The monetary behavior of delinquent persons with mercenary deviations has a pronounced consumer character. People with aggressive deviations are more likely to perceive money as an object of pride and a symbol of success than other delinquents. For people with socially passive deviations, money is a source of independence.
