Psi Chi Distinguished Lecture

Taking Situations Seriously

Collaborators from 19 countries directed college-affiliated participants (total N = 3,287) to a website where they used the Riverside Situational Q-sort (RSQ) to describe the situation they experienced the previous day at 7 p.m., and their behavior in it. The most similar situational experience was between the United States and Canada; the least similar were South Korea and Denmark. In general, the items that varied the most across cultures described negative aspects of situational experience; the least varying items were more positive. The RSQ is shown to be a versatile tool for examining the sources of behavioral consistency, for specifying situations described by theories, and for cross-cultural comparison.
