Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Geert Hofstede's theory of cultural dimensions describes the effects of a society's culture on the values of its members, and how these values relate to behavior, using a structure derived from factor analysis. The theory has been widely used in several fields as a paradigm for research, particularly in cross-cultural psychology, international management, and cross-cultural communication. Hofstede developed his original model as a result of using factor analysis to examine the results of a world-wide survey of employee values by IBM in the 1960s and 1970s. The theory was one of the first that could be quantified, and could be used to explain observed differences between cultures.

The original theory proposed four dimensions along which cultural values could be analyzed: individualism-collectivism; uncertainty avoidance; power distance (strength of social hierarchy) and masculinity-femininity (task orientation versus person-orientation). Independent research in Hong Kong led Hofstede to add a fifth dimension, long-term orientation, to cover aspects of values not discussed in the original paradigm. In the 2010 edition of Cultures and Organizations: Software of the Mind [1] Hofstede added a sixth dimension, indulgence versus self-restraint, as a result of co-author Michael Minkov's analysis of data from the World Values Survey. Further research has refined some of the original dimensions, and introduced the difference between country-level and individual-level data in analysis.

Hofstede's work established a major research tradition in cross-cultural psychology and has also been drawn upon by researchers and consultants in many fields relating to international business and communication. It continues to be a major resource in cross-cultural fields. It has inspired a number of other major cross-cultural studies of values, as well as research on other aspects of culture, such as social beliefs.

Re-reading Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory.

The Day I Forgot How to Use a Book

I was shocked at what I had just done, so I laughed out loud. I was there, in a house in the Swiss mountains, lying comfortably on a sofa. I was reading Canetti's Crowds and Power, a solid 400-page book.
Tianyi Li's insight:

The way we read from a digital device has already changed the way we do in a printed book. Back then when we first got such a digital device to read, no one knew how to turn pages if this one was done. There were no physical pages to turn over, only a screen. But when we have adapted the way read on a digital device, like an iPad, we forgot how to read on a real book, which we were doing all the time. 

 

This is mutual. We used the way we read on a printed book to read e-books, and that didn't quite work well, and easily got confused. Now think back, how do we know that we swipe to turn to next page on an iPad? From out current perspective, it seems only natural to swipe to turn book pages, even on printed books. 

 

However, the natural thing is to read a printed book. A person doesn't need to be taught to turn pages with a printed book, he just knows it. But when he first gets an iPad, if no one teaches him how to turn pages, and he never watched someone turns pages on an iPad, how can he learn to turn pages?
