Created a model of «National Karma»

22 октября, 2021 от Kinok Выкл

Different societies react in different ways to non-standard and extreme actions of citizens, and the norms of behavior in different countries are very different: somewhere Maidan is the norm, somewhere — God forbid.

Exceptionally important and current book

«Strict» culture involves rigid norms of behavior and low tolerance to the deviant (deviating from the norm) behavior. And the «free» — on the contrary, is characterized by soft norms and high tolerance to deviations. The «strict» societies are of religious «free» and are in the authorities of traditional morality and values that help to maintain public order and social coordination. «Free» — tolerant to any deviations from traditional morality and values.

Cultural differences in different socios, in the context of the «theory of rigor and freedom» are huge. On the schedule below, Michel Gelfand, each of the 33 countries meets the valuation on the Slage / Rigidity — Freedom scale. This scale range, along the edges of which there are extreme cases, and within a variety of different degrees.

It is clear now, why Ukraine and Maidan is an absolutely organic combination?

However, fixing the indicators of the «index of strictness / freedom» of cultures «10 years ago, we still did not understand the main thing —

As Michel Gelfand writes:

First breakthrough in the scientific understanding of this topic (based on field, experimental, computational and neurobiological methods)

Based on data 33 countries, it was shown that:

Sergey Gavrilets

Gavrilec is an American physicist of Russian origin, which has become an evolutionary theoretical biologist and applied mathematician with a unique spectrum of interest: from evolutionary biology to epigenetics and cliodynamics. He became famous, primarily unique on exquisite complexity with mathematical models. Who is not aware, be sure to read about some of his old feats:

However, the new model of Sergey is truly fundamental to its importance.

Many factors are affected by decision-making, including considerations of material benefits, regulatory and cultural influences, training, as well as the desire to comply with their solutions to their social group and external authorities (various kinds of influentes: cultural, religious, political, etc.).

In no less important, dynamically changing personal perception of the situation and the idea of the actions and expectations of others, as well as psychological phenomena as cognitive dissonance and social projection.

To better understand all these processes, Gavrilets built a special model, allowing you to see which norms are internally, and what factors manage the beliefs about the beliefs of others.

At the heart of the model of the hypothesis that

Those. As a result, any group of people comes to a stable equilibrium between

The model showed that in the context of the «theory of rigidity and freedom», the most important factors on which depends

In general, the author conducted by the author gives theoretical substantiation of causal relations between the above factors and the degree of cultural «strictness / freedom» of society.

Applied potential of this model is difficult to overestimate.

And perhaps it is not only an understanding of answers to questions, like,


Thanks for watching! Put husky I.
