oGo to Africa and collect data there

family as well

Studying Culture
2 primary methodological orientations
Typical methods
***SHES NOT TALKING ABOUT METHODOLOGICAL CONCERNS!
Methodological orientations
Culture comparative
Cross cultural
Culture Comparative
The idea here is that humans are humans and our culture just essentially a
situation that is put on top of us
We have all the same heuristics and cognitive biases, psychological processes, as
people from another culture
Culture comparative psychologists thinks that variation between a culture is
comparable to variation within a culture
Cross-Cultural
You cant compare one person in this culture to one person in another culture
They’re going to focus on within culture variation
They’re not going to compare somebody who is very individualist to someone was
collectivises in Canada to those in china because they’re going to say Canadians
developed in their own way and china developed in their own way
Typical Methods
Culture-comparative
oCreate a construct
oIdentify behaviours that indicate this construct
