Abstract: 
The present study examined the relationships between aspects of individual modernity
among Chinese adolescents in Singapore aged fifteen years (N = 250, M = 122, F = 128).
The Aspects chosen are those seen by Inkeles (1969), changes that occur in a
country's modernization as being required in order to cope with the various need for
achievement, efftcient time-management, future-planning and autonomous decision-making.
While there is strong interdependence among achievement motivation,
future-planning and time-management of both genders, autonomy emerges as a
separate dimension.
