As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Explain how simple descriptions of cultural proclivities are often only generalizations that explain cultural aspects on a superficial level. 2. Articulate the proclivities of their own cultures and compare them to other cultures according to the Hofstede Insights website. 3. Examine gaps in the information provided by the Hofstede Insights website by engaging in more substantial discussion about the nuances of their own culture.
