Dimensions Individualism versus collectivism Power distance Uncertainty avoidance Masculinity Etc. Subjective domains and dimensions of culture exist both socially—that is, across individuals within groups—and individually within each member of a cultural group. To the extent that subjective domains and dimensions of culture can be identified on the individual level, they can be measured in psychological research. Research on the various domains of psychology—attitudes, values, beliefs, and the like—has been standard fare for psychologists for many years.

In individualistic cultures, personal needs and goals take precedence over the needs of others; in a collectivistic culture, individual needs are sacrificed to satisfy the group. Numerous other dimensions of cultural variability have been proposed. Mulder (1976, 1977) and later Hofstede (1980, 1984) used the dimension of power distance (PD)—the degree of inequality in power between a less powerful individual (I) and a more powerful other (O). Matsumoto (1991) suggested a slightly modified version of PD called status differentiation (SD)—the degree to which cultures maintain status differences among their members.

In short, there has been a discrepancy between how theorists talk about culture and its effects on human behavior and how researchers actually study it in their research. Fortunately, the gap between theory and method with regard to culture is closing fast, thanks to recent developments not only in the measurement of culture but in conceptualizations of it that make it amenable to measurement. These developments have major positive impacts, not only empirically in crosscultural research but also theoretically on cross-cultural theories and models of behavior.
