Cultural Emotion Expressions - Summary

Summary

Research has shown that the emotional expressions differ between Western and Eastern cultures. Eastern cultures are seen as more collectivistic, therefore they show less emotion in order to keep the well-being of the group intact. Members of Western cultures express their emotions in order to help themselves out, even if it involves negative emotions towards others. These two different types of cultures represent the exact opposites of each other, but both ways of emotional expression seem to work for their own cultures. But each culture has differences within itself. Just because Eastern cultures follow a collectivistic model, does not mean they do not express their emotions. It simply means they express their emotions less, or in a more private setting. This also holds true for Western cultures. Just because Western people usually follow individualistic cultures, does not mean that they will not sacrifice for the good of the whole group. These two different cultures embrace emotions differently in their own ways, and there are advantages and disadvantages to both.

Famous quotes containing the word summary:

    I have simplified my politics into an utter detestation of all existing governments; and, as it is the shortest and most agreeable and summary feeling imaginable, the first moment of an universal republic would convert me into an advocate for single and uncontradicted despotism. The fact is, riches are power, and poverty is slavery all over the earth, and one sort of establishment is no better, nor worse, for a people than another.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Product of a myriad various minds and contending tongues, compact of obscure and minute association, a language has its own abundant and often recondite laws, in the habitual and summary recognition of which scholarship consists.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)
