Q.E.D. From Herodotus' Ethnographic Journeys to Cross-Cultural Research.

In this investigation we were concerned with the cultural co-variates of temporal orientation in 14 different national contexts. Data were collected from U.S., Australia, Germany, Poland, Chile, Venezuela, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, India, Indonesia, Malaysia Japan, South Korea and China. Analyses show that collectivistic cultural orientation tends to be relatively important in the prediction of three facets of temporal orientation (i.e. emphasis on planning and scheduling; sense of time and attitude towards time). Results are discussed with their implications for future research.
