>which country is most similar to yours?
>australia being more similar to the US than canada
what the fug
>tfw you realise you country is a more expensive version of america but without any of the cultural or scientific achievements
>have to compo are every country one on one
but Netherlands seem to be really similar, except we are more masculine and they are better long term planners/more traditional
>his country's workforce only has a masculinity score of 52
that varies a lot by region, some parts of the US and canada are more similar than others, for example vancouverites are a lot like seattleites and many californias
prairie people are a lot like midwestern americans
torontonians are more like new yorkers, and so on
CAN'T MAKE THIS SHIT UP
Literally no country in the world is as "feminine" as ours, yet has decent "long-term orientation".
not even our bro Denmark ;_;
Why is no one posing the question of how the fuck they can claim to calculate global statistics for culturally relative and abstract social phenomena like "masculinity" or "uncertainty avoidance" or "individualism"?
Am I being memed?

Yes, Because nobody is going to use this data in any way other than to meme on other countries.
>Geert Hofstede cultural dimensions
Outdated Dutch IBM bullshit
GLOBE model is more accurate
He used an IBM study of employees to create cultural dimensions for each country. I doubt anyone here other than me could actually interpret those scores without looking at the descriptions.
Are you being retarded instead?
They made up a couple of dimensions and some variables to measure them, then gave those dimensions labels that kind of describe them in current Western or culture.
For example, the Netherlands is "feminine" because we have a metric fuckton of welfare policies and we take decades to reach a resolution on trivial issues. But the metric completely glosses over the fact that our market is very competitive.
Just shoot me
Just spent 3 months in Canada and the US, can confirm. Couldn't tell the difference between the two except for the people (Canadians really are extremely polite), Australia is wayy different.
