Towards Understanding the Interplay Between Culture and Goals

We show in the field and the lab that independent (interdependent) cultural values increase motivation for pursuing attainment (maintenance) goals. We further show that this effect is driven by the congruence between higher-order goals reflecting cultural values and lower-order consumption goals, and is independent of the influence of regulatory focus.
