The authors examined the effects of self-controland social suuport among a representative sample of 300 people, 150 in high-density and 150 in low-density households in India. The Self-control Schedule (M. Rosenbaum, 1980), the Comfortable Interpersonal Distance Test (M. Duke & S. Nowicki, 1972), the Socail Support Questionnaire, and the Judgment of Environmental Quality Scale (I. G. Sarason, H. M. levine, R. B. Basham & B.R. Sarason, 1983) were the measures. A 2x2x2 (Density x Socail Support x Self-Control) analysis of variance for perceptions of home environment and personal space requirements recvealed that the Self-Control x Social Support interaction moderated the crowding effects of density: The participants in high-density households evaluated their home environments more positively and reduced their personal space requirements.
