This is intended to correspond to the main interests of culture-comparative researchers who seek to account for individual and group similarities and differences in behavior as a function of population-level factors.

Other outcomes result from influences stemming from culture contact in the sociopolitical context of one’s group. These come about with contacts between populations due to such historical and contemporary experiences as colonial expansion, international trade, invasion and migration. Such influences are captured by another process variable, that of acculturation, which involves mutual influence between the groups in contact (see Chapter 13).

Several comparative studies have been reported confirming hypotheses to test this idea (Nisbett, Peng, Choi and Norenzayan, 2001; Peng and Nisbett, 1999). Cultural roots have been inferred that go back to ancient Greek and Chinese philosophies (Nisbett, 2003), reflecting, like the other examples mentioned in this paragraph, a high level of generalization (see Chapter 12).
