The Interdecadal Variation of Independent Self-Construals and Interdependent Self-Construals of Chinese
Abstract: Objective: As the development of the society and economic, the value orientation of Chinese is constantly changing, too. This kind of change will affect the self-construals of Chinese. The aim of this paper is to explore whether there is difference in independent self-construals and interdependent self-construals of different generations in China. Methods: Through the way of household surveys, we investigated the 13 counties of Guangdong province in 2010. In 2013, we expanded the scope of household surveys and investigated the condition of self-construals of 119 counties in six provinces including Liaoning, Jiangxi, Hubei, Guangdong, Gansu and Shanxi. Results: Statistics results with ANOVA and hierarchical regression indicated that the difference between different generations in independent self-construals is significant but there is no significant difference between different generations in interdependent self-construals. Conclusion: The independent self- construals are stronger and stronger over different generations, but the interdependent self-cons- truals remain the same in different generations.
