In comparative cultural studies, research is often conducted in the context of individualism versus collectivism in society, as well as independent versus interdependent self-construal. Previous works have shown that collectivist societies, such as Japan, have interdependent models of selfhood.
This study focused on Latin American societies, showing that they have collectivist values as well as independent forms of self-construal. Based on these results, this article argues for the importance of collecting data on cultural diversity in the world outside of ‘East’ and ‘West.’
