Hey all,

My name is Jovana Balanovic and I am a masters student in cross-cultural psychology at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. I am conducting a research project on 'how culture shapes who you are' and I would love to hear your views. Not only would you be contributing to important cross-cultural research but you might also learn something about yourself in the process.

All you need to do to contribute is fill in this short (approx. 20mins), completely annonymous survey by clicking on this link (or copy link into browser)- http://vuw.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_01iC8cZOhh3nvO5. The only criteria for participating is that you live in either in Australia, New Zealand or the US and are over 18. By the way, the link allows you to stop and return to finish the survey at a later time - so you donít have to do it all at once.

Any contributions are appreciated and comments/discussion is welcome.
Thank you for your time,
Jovana

I will give you a tip Jovi, cross-cultural psychology and socioeconomic circumstance run parallel.

OK, I filled the form.

Frankly, I can't see any connection between the questions and culture. Also, the term 'my culture' is so ambiguous as to render the questions about it meaningless.

One essential fault is that this very question, "how culture shapes who you are", is absurd: the question of who I am (or who someone else is) was never addressed and indeed, who we are cannot be influenced by culture or by anything else. Instead, those questions were only about my mind, which is not that important because it has nothing to do with who I am and probably goes away anyway once the body dies.

Just did the survey.

There seemed to be a lot of personal stuff that doesnít really relate to culture very much at all.

I had to answer practically all the questions pertaining to culture with a neutral response, as there are aspects of each question that your culture affects and aspects that it just doesnít at all.

I'm glad it's not my taxes being wasted on this stuff.

Some people need to camouflage their navel to stop them meditating on it about this stuff.

Hasbeen,

All for the 'diversity-you-have-to-have' and it is your fault if there are unforeseen negative consequences.
