The quality of humanity
What is the trait of mankind?
Mainstream United States culture is affirmative insofar as it is assumed that whatsoever achievement is attainable if worked for, and that mankind is at long last perfectible - as the millions of self-help publications and video recordings marketed every year prove.
But this assumption of perfectibility does not entail that the American is equally positive about his/her diametric numbers in day-to-day encounters. The construct that the negotiating unit regularly includes jural personnel implies concern that the opposite party will renege on an agreement if given unclearness.
Numerous Europeans occupy a more disheartened approach towards human nature. They demonstrate a greater doubtfulness of experts, and expect that human conditions are more convoluted than do North Americans. This is mirrored in a predilection for more complex cognitive representations of behavior and hence more composite structures than are found in North American organizations.
Relation to nature
What is the person's relation to nature?
Up until lately, U.S. culture has in general perceived the human being as set-apart from nature, and eligible to exploit it. Such activities as mining, damming watercourses for hydro-electrical power, analysing and planning to control weather structures, hereditary engineering, all present a need for dominance.
However lately, the populace has become more aware of needs to preserve the environment, and this is reflected in corporate marketing plans of action and the growth of "reusable" and "biodegradable" products.
In the main, basic cognitive processes of control are mirrored in a preparedness to manage human psychology, and human relationships. An instance is given by policy planned to adjust a structured culture.
In relation, Arab culture tends to be extremely fatalistic towards attempts to change or improve the world. Humankind can do petty on its own to achieve success or fend off calamity.
