Global Map of Culture Types
Cultures around the world perceive life and morality in different ways. This interactive map visualizes the primary culture type—i.e., guilt, shame, or fear—of each country in the world.
- “Residency in Country” refers to the respondents’ relationship to the culture for which they answered the questions. That is, whether they answered the questions for their primary/birth culture or their host/secondary culture, and how long they have lived in that culture.
- “Ethnicity/Culture” is how the respondent self-identified the culture/ethnic group for which they answered the questions. Type a search term (i.e., “kurd” “asian-canadian” “anglo”), click enter, then select the terms you want visualized on the map)
- The filters “Education,” “Age,” and “Sex” refer the respondents’ information about themselves (not the culture for which they answered the questions).
