Resumen

SMITH, Peter B. et al. Culture as perceived context: An exploration of the distinction between dignity, face and honor cultures. Acta de investigación psicol [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.1, pp.2568-2576. ISSN 2007-4719.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.aipprr.2017.03.001.

Researchers are making increasing use of the distinction between cultural logics emphasizing dignity, face, and honor. Students from eight nations including two from Latin America rated items tapping the extent to which they believed that most persons in their nation endorsed these types of mindset. Their ratings did not accord with prior beliefs as to which cultures exemplify dignity, face, and honor. However, the predictions that analytic cognition would be more prevalent in dignity cultures and contrasting types of holistic cognition would be more prevalent in face and honor cultures were supported. The belief that the logic of dignity was prevalent within one’s nation was significantly associated with higher life satisfaction.

Palabras llave : Face cultures; Honor cultures; Dignity cultures; Depression; Life satisfaction.
