Cultural Difference in Self-Consciousness on Empathy Toward Socially Responsible Consumption

According to Triandis’s theory, people with individualistic cultures tend to use private self-consciousness, whereas people with collectivistic cultures use public one. A shopping scenario was provided to examine participants’ responses. The result shows that cultural difference is found in the distinct effects of self-consciousness on empathy for socially responsible consumption.
