The Psychological Measurement of Cultural Syndromes.
Triandis, Harry C.
American Psychologist, v51 n4 p407-15 Apr 1996
Discusses how psychological methods can be applied to study cultural syndromes and presents examples of these approaches. It is argued that tight-simple cultures are most collectivist, and loose-complex cultures are most individualistic. Further, it suggests homogeneous cultures can have clear norms and impose them tightly, whereas heterogeneous cultures require looseness to avoid friction. (GR)
