讲座内容概要:

       Past research on the theories of Self-Construal and Individualism-Collectivism in cross-cultural contexts presents inconsistent and inconclusive results. Some researchers have seriously questioned the validity of major instruments measuring self-construal across cultural groups. To address the validity issue, this study developed quantitative measures from ethnographic data. In five scenarios mapping self-close other boundaries, 171 Anglo-Canadians and 224 Mainland Chinese were asked to make a decision and offer a reason for the decision. Several intriguing findings emerged from the data. (1) In answering to the question “If you were Arthur, what would you do” when Arthur’s father adored the five cloisonné vases in his house, Canadians were less likely than Chinese to give one of the five vases to a relative. (2) In answering to the question “what would you do if you were Bill” knowing that your roommate Dave has drunk your apple juice, the Canadians were more likely than Chinese to take action in this situation. (3) In answering to the question “If you were me, what would you do” knowing that Joan, my trusted friend needed money and I happened to have the amount in the bank, Canadians were less likely than Chinese to lend money to a trusted friend. (4) In answering the question “If you were Alan, what would you do” knowing that Alan just broke up with his girlfriend after a two-year steady relationship and Alan had two good friends in town, Canadians were more likely than Chinese to talk to their friends about a personal matter. Finally, in answering to the question “If you were Patricia’s roommate, what would you say” when you see Patricia wearing a mis-matched outfit, Canadians were more likely than Chinese to point out the embarrassing truth to a roommate.
