Predisposition and relationship to nature

The traits of people

What is the nature of citizenry?    

Mainstream United States culture is positive insofar as it is taken for granted that any accomplishment is possible if worked for, and that humanity is in the end perfectible - as the millions of self-aid books and video recordings marketed every year exhibit (Schein, 1981).

Yet this hypothesis of capableness does not signify that the American is equally positive about his/her opposite aspects in day-after-day confrontations. The reality that the discussion team regularly includes legal personnel implies care that the other party will rescind on an understanding if given a loophole.

Numerous Europeans occupy a more pessimistic approach towards human nature. They display a greater distrust of experts, and presume that human motivations are more intricate than do Americans. This is reverberated in a predisposition for more interwoven cognitive models of behavior and thus more interwoven composition than are constituted in American social groups (Cooper and Cox, 1989).

Relationship to nature

What is the being's relationship to nature?

Up until newly, American culture has generally perceived the human as set-apart from traits, and eligible to use it. Such activities as mining, diking rivers for hydro-electrical power, examining and provision to control weather patterns, genic engineering, all show a need for control.

Still recently, the world has turned more cognizant of needs to uphold the environment, and this is mirrored in corporate marketing policies and the maturation of 'reclaimable' and 'biodegradable' products.

More in general, conceptualizations of dominance are reflected in a willingness to manage the psychology of mankind, and human relationships. An example is provided by plan of action blueprinted to modify an organizational culture.

In comparing, Arab culture minds to be extremely fatalistic towards attempts to change or modify the world. Mankind can do footling on its own to achieve attainment or avert hardship.
