A Cross-Cultural Study of Role Perceptions.
Triandis, Harry C.; And Others
Survey responses from 1,620 subjects in the United States, Greece, India, Peru, and Taiwan provide information on cross-cultural role perceptions. Study data reveal (1) the principal factors accounting for the variance in role perception in each culture, (2) those factors that are the same in all cultures, (3) the equivalent factor scores that indicate a broad pattern, and (4) meaningful influences on social behavior stimulated by differing role perception interpretations in specific cultures.
