Multicultural Minds: A Dynamic Constructivist Approach to Culture and Cognition.
Hong, Ying-yi; Morris, Michael W.; Chiu, Chie-yue; Benet-Martinez, Veronica
American Psychologist, v55 n7 p709-20 Jul 2000
This approach to culture and cognition highlights dynamics through which cultural knowledge becomes operative in guiding the construction of meaning from a stimulus. Cognitive priming experiments simulated how bicultural people switch between cultural frames in response to culturally laden symbols. Results illuminate how cultural constructs are potent drivers of behavior and how bicultural people control the cognitive effects of culture. (SM)
