Cultural generalization is a term for a cultural stereotype that refers to all members of a
country. This term ensures one to be aware of and understand the cultural patterns of different
people. For instance, it provides a critical understanding of other cultures. Other studies describe
cultural organizations as categorizing members of a group with the same traits (Scaratti & Ivaldi,
(2021). This idea is good as far as cultural stereotypes are concerned. I would encourage people
to apply elements involved in this culture. One benefit I have realized about this term is that it
provides flexibility where new cultural information can be incorporated (Scaratti & Ivaldi,
(2021). Flexibility leads to cultural curiosity and awareness, thus improving intercultural
relationships. I have experienced cultural generalization during my first year in university, where
I got involved with an Igbo friend; I was curious about his culture. I learned some of the cultural
aspects, which enhanced our cultural relationship.

determining whether this model is valid across different cultures. Different findings have been
established, but most of them lack sufficient evidence (Riccelli et al., 2017). However, based on
a recent study, concrete evidence was established stating that there are systematic patterns across
different personality traits, but there is an uncertain interpretation. Based on the evidence
established from these studies, age changes are projected to increase neuroticism, extraversion,
