What Is the Relation Between Culture and Desirable Responding?
EXTENDED ABSTRACT - The literature in cross-cultural psychology suggests that collectivists are more likely to engage in deception in order to save face and maintain harmonious relationships with others. In contrast, individualists are portrayed as candid and sincere because individualism encourages people to Abe yourself.@ For example, Trilling (1972) argues that people in individualist cultures are more likely to seek sincerity and authenticity, whereas people in collectivist cultures de-emphasize authenticity. Similarly, Triandis (1995) proposes that honesty in interactions with strangers is a characteristic that is more highly valued by individualists than collectivists.
