    Reference culture: Germany

    Communication: 8/15 (slightly leaning towards high context), norm is 3.6/15
    Evaluation: 9/15 (leaning towards indirect negative feedback), norm is 1.2/15
    Persuading: 9/15 (leaning towards application), norm is 3.3/15
    Leading: 10/15 (leaning towards hierarchical), norm is 9.15/15
    Deciding: 10/15 (leaning towards top-down), norm is 4.2/15
    Trusting: 7/15 (mostly neutral), norm is 3/15 (task-based)
    Disagreeing: 8/15 (leaning towards conflict avoidance), norm is 1.35 (very direct)
    Scheduling: 7/15 (mostly neutral), norm is 0.45 (extremely linear)

    So to sum things up, I am more indirect and conflict avoidant than the very blunt and rigid culture around me and would be better fitted for some Asian cultures (especially since I slightly lean towards hierarchical structures and a top-down approach). Interesting.

    UK as reference culture:

    Communication: 7/15 norm is 4.8/15
    Evaluation: 9/15 norm is 7.8/15
    Persuading: 8/15 norm is 11.4/15
    Leading: 4/15 norm is 6.9/15
    Deciding: 8/15 norm is 6.9/15
    Trusting: 5/15 norm is 4.8/15
    Disagreeing: 10/15 norm is 8.25
    Scheduling: 7/15 norm is 4.5


    In short Falcarius has about average for communicating content, deciding, and persuading. As well as preference for indirect negative feedback evaluating, task-based trust, avoids confrontation when disagreeing, and more egalitarian leading. The main diffidences is Falcarius is more egalitarian and flexible with scheduling than his culture.

    You selected USA as your nationality. Observe where you fall on each of the eight scales:
    Communicating:
    0 is low context and 15 is high context.
    USA: .45 out of 15
    Me: 8 out of 15

    Evaluating:
    0 is direct and 15 is indirect.
    USA: 6.75 out of 15
    Me: 4 out of 15

    Persuading:
    0 is principles first and 15 is applications first.
    USA: 14.25 out of 15
    Me: 6 out of 15

    Leading:
    0 is egalitarian and 15 is hierarchical.
    USA: 3.4 out of 15
    Me: 3 out of 15

    Deciding:
    0 is consensual and 15 is top-down.
    USA: 9.6 out of 15
    Me: 5 out of 15

    Trusting:
    0 is task based and 15 is relationship based.
    USA: .45 out of 15
    Me: 7 out of 15

    Disagreeing:
    0 is confrontational and 15 is not.
    USA: 6.6 out of 15
    Me: 3 out of 15

    Scheduling:
    0 is linear and 15 is flexible.
    USA: 3.3 out of 15
    Me: 12 out of 15

    I chose Norway as my nationality as they didnt have Belgium and it would be interesting to see what challenges I can expect here in Norway on this.

    Communicating Low-context - High-context
    Norm: 5.1/15
    Me: 7/15
    ...meaning I'll have to edit my responses a little to make them more concrete and clear.

    Evaluating Direct negative feedback - Indirect negative feedback
    Norm: 4.8/15
    Me: 11/15
    ...meaning I'll have to be my direct in my feedback and expect to get very direct feedback myself. I tend to weigh my feedback against what the person seems to be able to take for now (unless I lose my patience/temper, or there is a time constraint of some sort), then parse it, in order to give the next bit of feedback once they've digested the first piece, and so on.

    Persuading Principles-first - Applications-first
    Norm: 8.4/15
    Me: 7/15
    ...that seems about right. I prefer pure data before concluding the principle myself, though I like knowing the 'theme' of the pure data in order to keep my Ne from going wild.

    Leading Egalitarian - Hierarchical
    Norm: 0.6/15
    Me: 5/15

    ...ahh...yeah. Ehm, Belgium tends to be hierarchal to the point that it literally gives me anxiety attacks. I'm still adjusting to the fact that it's totally ok over here to address your doctor with their first name

    It was one of the things that got drilled into me in one of the job orientation classes I got over here, but the hierarchal concept has got deep roots in childhood, unfortunately.

    Deciding Consensual - Top-down
    Norm: 1.5/15
    Me: 9/15
    Interesting..ties in to the previous thing, for me. I love the idea of doing things by consensus, but am not used to it in practice. That said, consensus can make you roll your eyes through the roof as well, if it's not getting you anywhere (in Belgium this is what happens amongst peers as nobody has the leader position and everyone feels uncomfortable making any suggestions, let alone the decision itself.)


    Trusting Task-based - Relationship-based
    Norm: 2.4/15
    Me: 12/15
    I have a feeling I need to move to a southern country based on this
    I really hate this, but it works for a germanic culture. Do an activity together, for weeks on end, then watch them finally start to talk to you. Sigh, such a waste of time, but oh well. Guess the only way to go about it is to really pick stuff that actually interests you, instead of focusing on the people that intrigue you. Sucks.

    Disagreeing Confrontational - Avoids confrontation
    Norm: 9.3/15
    Me: 9/15
    Otoh, this seems pretty much perfect

    Scheduling Linear time - Flexible time
    Norm: 3/15
    Me: 11/15
    ....southern country once more

    I'm a US citizen in the US.

    Communicating:
    USA: 0.45/15
    Me: 6/15

    Evaluating:
    USA: 6.75/15
    Me: 8/15

    Persuading:
    USA: 14.25/15
    Me: 7/15

    Leading:
    USA: 3.6/15
    Me: 12/15

    Deciding:
    USA: 9.6/15
    Me: 13/15

    Trusting:
    USA: 0.45/15
    Me: 4/15

    Disagreeing:
    USA: 6.6/15
    Me: 8/15

    Scheduling:
    USA: 3.3/15
    Me: 8/15

    ---------

    8,8,8, 7? Perhaps I was giving excessively moderate answers.

    I tried answering based on experience rather than ideals. I have to say, I don't feel like some of this is quite right. Particularly the trust thing. I think I would be more like the US norm. I don't know how I could have answered in a way that would make me seem less interested in personal relationships.
    Also surprised that I'm supposed so flexible. Not sure how that came up in my answers. I'm usually rigid if I have to coordinate with others.

    Anyhow. The biggest discrepancy between me and the culture is leadership style. I am apparently way more hierarchical than the US norm. The next biggest is style of persuasion, where I'm a lot more interested in ground principles. Areas where I'm most similar is approach to disagreement followed by evaluation.
    My most extreme score in absolute terms is being top down in decision making, on which I score 13. That's followed by being hierarchical in leadership, one which I score 12. the first is significantly above the US norm, the second is vastly above the US norm.

    What should I make of this score overall? I don't feel like I have a clear, holistic picture of how this orients me toward my culture.

    I'd like to see was the scores actually are for various national averages. And it'd be cool if there were a tool that found the national scores closest to yours.

    EDIT: Oh god. the second sentence has two different rhymes in it.

    Another who doesn't fit well with USA culture.

    High context - 8/15

    Indirect negative feedback - 10/15

    Principles first - 6/15

    Hierarchical - 8/15 *This surprised me, as I consider myself more egalitarian. But I'm less contrarian in person, and some of my answers had more to do with that. I wouldn't correct a boss in front of others, but neither would I do that to most people (in person).

    Top-down - 11/15 *I think consensus wastes time, but neither am I top-down. I think specialization is more of what I prefer.

    Task-based - 3/15 Only for work. I compartmentalize my personal life.

    Avoid confrontations - 9/15 I actually prefer open disagreement, but my experience tells me others don't.

    Flexible- 12/15

    This was interesting. Country: Singapore

    Norm: The norm for your culture is not plotted here, because it is neither principles-first nor applications-first, but holistic.
    Me: 8/15

    Leading Egalitarian - Hierarchical
    Norm: 12.9/15
    Me: 7/15

    Scheduling Linear time - Flexible time
    Norm: 3.9/15

    The parts where I get in trouble are those involving hierarchy, authority and "trust".

    I didn't copy my answers, but I often wound up on the opposite side of the spectrum from others of my culture, which is the USA. Haven't lived there for almost a decade, though.
