Where East Meets West: Enriching Cultural Universals

This research highlights the importance of partial cultural universals of consumption symbols. We examined perceptual structures of brand personality in India and identified an isomorphic dimension with the West and the East, along with a culturally distinctive dimension. This research also documents idiosyncratic differences in the meanings associated with these isomorphic dimensions.
