Designers have long adopted the knowledge from the field of psychology to expand architectural space’s emotional impacts. Appropriate design strategies can improve and sustain well-being through instilling the sense of empowerment, leading to positive relationships among space occupants. Issue: A large body of the literature has sought to provide a conclusive empirical assessment on the predictability of attitudes and behaviours in positive relationships (PR) through personal empowerment (PE). Purpose: This paper intends to determine the predictability of PR based on PE. Approach: Multiple Correlation and Multiple Linear Regression were conducted to estimate linear associations and parameters of linear equations to predict PR components based on PE items. Findings: Components of PR were predictable by the majority of the PE items and ‘monitoring behaviours to suit with situation’ was the strongest predictor of PR.
