Mental Traveling Along Social and Temporal Distances: the Influence of Cultural Syndromes on Construal Level

We provide an integrated framework in examining the antecedents of construal level that implies interactive effects of general cultural orientations (e.g., individualism/collectivism and short/long-term orientation) and psychological distance on construal level. The present research reconciles the mixed findings of previous research on the effects of cultural orientation on construal level.
