Krys, K., Vignoles, V., Uchida Y., & de Almeida, I. (in print). Outside the ‘Cultural Binary’: Understanding why Latin American collectivist societies foster independent selves. Perspectives on Psychological Science.

Cultural psychologists often treat binary contrasts of West versus East, individualism versus collectivism, and independent versus interdependent self-construal as interchangeable, axiomatically assuming that collectivist societies promote interdependent rather than independent models of selfhood. Latin American societies constitute a problem case for this assumption. Existing data indicate that Latin American societies emphasize collectivist values at least as strongly as Confucian East Asian societies, but they emphasize independent self-construals at least as strongly as “Western” societies (with some differences in the forms of independence that are most prevalent). Rather than dismiss these findings as anomalous, we make sense of them by exploring socioecological and historical differences between Confucian Asian and Latin American societies. The relative prevalence of independent models of selfhood in Latin American societies can be explained by these societies’ modes of subsistence (herding vs. rice farming), colonial histories (frontier settlement), cultural heterogeneity, Christian religious heritage, and societal organisation (relational mobility, loose norms, honor logic). The findings also cohere with other indices of contemporary psychological culture. We conclude that the common view linking collectivist values with interdependent self-construals needs revision. Global cultures are diverse, and researchers should pay more attention to societies beyond “the West” and East Asia.

Advance online publication. https://doi.org/10.1080/17439760.2020.1858332

In this paper, we introduce the concept of ‘societal emotional environment’: the emotional climate of a society (operationalized as the degree to which positive and negative emotions are expressed in a society). Using data collected from 12,888 participants across 49 countries, we show how societal emotional environments vary across countries and cultural clusters, and we consider the potential importance of these differences for well-being. Multilevel analyses supported a ‘double- edged sword’ model of negative emotion expression, where expression of negative emotions predicted higher life satisfaction for the expresser but lower life satisfaction for society. In contrast, partial support was found for higher societal life satisfaction in positive societal emotional envir- onments. Our study highlights the potential utility and importance of distinguishing between positive and negative emotion expression, and adopting both individual and societal perspectives in well-being research. Individual pathways to happiness may not necessarily promote the happi- ness of others..

(2021). Personal life satisfaction as a measure of societal happiness is an individualistic presumption: Evidence from fifty countries. Journal of Happiness Studies, 22, 2197- 2214. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10902-020-00311-y

Numerous studies document that societal happiness is correlated with individualism, but the nature of this phenomenon remains understudied. In the current paper, we address this gap and test the reasoning that individualism correlates with societal happiness because the most common measure of societal happiness (i.e., country-level aggregates of personal life satisfaction) is individualism-themed. With the data collected from 13,009 participants across fifty countries, we compare associations of four types of happiness (out of which three are more collectivism-themed than personal life satisfaction) with two different meas- ures of individualism. We replicated previous findings by demonstrating that societal hap- piness measured as country-level aggregate of personal life satisfaction is correlated with individualism. Importantly though, we also found that the country-level aggregates of the collectivism-themed measures of happiness do not tend to be significantly correlated with individualism. Implications for happiness studies and for policy makers are signaled.

Psychologizing indexes of societal progress: Accounting for cultural diversity in preferred developmental pathways. Culture & Psychology, 26, 303-319. http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1354067X19868146

Since the Second World War, the dominating paradigm of societal development has focused on economic growth. While economic growth has improved the quality of human life in a variety of ways, we posit that the identification of economic growth as the primary societal goal is culture-blind because preferences for developmental pathways likely vary between societies. We argue that the cultural diversity of developmental goals and the pathways leading to these goals could be reflected in a culturally sensitive approach to assessing societal development. For the vast majority of post-materialistic societies, it is an urgent necessity to prepare culturally sensitive compasses on how to develop next, and to start conceptualizing growth in a more nuanced and culturally responsive way. Furthermore, we propose that cultural sensitivity in measuring societal growth could also be applied to existing development indicators (e.g. the Human Development Index). We call for cultural researchers, in cooperation with development economists and other social scientists, to prepare a new cultural map of developmental goals, and to create and adapt development indexes that are more culturally sensitive. This innovation could ultimately help social planners understand the diverse pathways of development and assess the degree to which societies are progressing in a self-determined and indigenously valued manner.

Rappleye, J., Komatsu, H., Uchida, Y., Krys, K., & Markus, H. (2020). ‘Better policies for better lives’?: constructive critique of the OECD’s (mis)measure of student well-being. Journal of Education Policy, 35, 258-282. https://doi.org/10.1080/02680939.2019.1576923

Facing increasing critique that PISA focuses too narrowly on cognitive achievement and human/knowledge capital, the OECD has recently shifted some of its focus to student happiness. The 2017 Students’ Well- Being report distinguishes between ‘happy schools’ and ‘unhappy schools’, showing that among students who combined high perfor- mance and life satisfaction, northern European countries topped the charts. Meanwhile, students in East Asian countries including Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Korea registered the lowest ‘life satis- faction’ scores among all participating countries. This piece points out some of the problems inherent in the OECD’s recent turn to happiness, problematizing the OECD yardstick of life satisfaction. Attempting to keep the critique constructive, we suggest that the OECD may want to consider using alternative metrics, then briefly highlight one devel- oped in East Asia from different first assumptions: the Interdependent Happiness Scale. In conclusion we flag, but cannot answer, some related educational questions concerning policy, pedagogy, and prio- rities for the future.
