In short, it is worth remembering that most of the theories and much of the research covered in this

book are based on observations in individualistic cultures. In fact, most of this work was conducted in

the United States, the country that was found in one study to be the most individualistic of 41 nations

examined (Suh, Diener, Oishi, & Triandis, 1998). This does not mean the research should be

dismissed. Rather, we should keep in mind that whether a particular description applies to people in

all cultures remains an open question. In some cases, such as the research on dream content

presented in Chapter 4 and the studies on marriage patterns presented in Chapter 10, investigators

find nearly identical results across very different cultural groups. In other cases, such as in the self-

esteem and achievement examples, they find important differences among cultures. Identifying the

cultural limitations or universality of various phenomena provides additional insight into the nature of

the concepts we study.
