Emotional Culture ResearchIt has been a long-held belief that cross cultural differences play a direct role in personality traits.

Are there more “D’s” for instance, in U.S. cultures, more S’s in Asian cultures, more “I’s” in the Hispanic Cultures, etc.?  The popular DISC instrument is used in name here, but it could be any number of other personality / behavioral trait measuring assessments.  New research however, has offered new data that suggests we look again.  Cultural differences do play a role in personality traits, therefore, must be considered in any reliable personality assessment construct / training choice.
