Culture, Social Comparison and Responses to Advertising
It has been discovered that individuals from different cultures often think and emote in ways very different from one another. These differences, at all levels of analysis, have been captured in a number of different constructs by researchers hoping to quantify and measure these effects. The goal of this research is to incorporate the three variables of culture, structure and person into one theoretical model via the processes of social comparison. Specifically, it is the aim of this study to ascertain how differences in culture impact the manner in which individuals engage in processes of social comparison with advertisements.
