Thinking About Cultural Differences III: Where Do They Come From?

Thinking About Cultural Differences III:  Where Do They Come From? | Butterflies in my head | Scoop.it

Cultural differences relate to individual differences.The work of Geert Hofstede in particular has had a profound influence on cultural psychology. He identified a number of dimensions along which cultures may differ. One in particular that has played an important role in the study of cultural differences in thinking is the distinction between individualist and collectivist cultures. To oversimplify a bit, an individualist culture is one that emphasizes the priority of the individual. A collectivist culture is one that prizes the group identity in which members of the culture strive to satisfy the goals of the group. Most cultural groups in Western societies are individualist cultures, while most cultural groups in East Asian societies tend to be collectivist cultures.

アーサー's insight:

-Are cultures and countries the same? If not, why?

-Are cities and cultures the same? How about villages? Or your local sports club?

 

This article is an easy to understand introduction into cultural differences and the field of cultural psychology. Good COPI stimulus material.
