內容簡介

為何有的國家領導人勇於創新有的則反之?嚴謹或鬆散的社會制度又如何決定人民幸福?
心理學教授Michele Gelfand解析文化如何引導我們的思想,塑造國家和推動人們之間的差異
「文化差異的原因為何?任何對文化鴻溝有興趣的人都將在本書中發現作者獨特的洞察力。」─史迪芬·亞瑟·平克,加拿大–美國實驗心理學家、認知科學家和科普作家


為何德國的鐘最準時,但在巴西卻大大相反?為何在新加坡販售口香糖是違法的?為何紐西蘭女性的人數是其他國家女性的三倍?為何德國戴姆勒和美國克萊斯勒的合併一開始就注定失敗?為何每一代美國人幫孩子取的名字越來越古怪?

獲獎無數的社會心理學家Michele Gelfand也同樣對這些問題感到非常好奇,她甚至花費兩年的時間研究嚴謹的社會制度(擁有清楚的規定和道德準則)和鬆散的社會制度(擁有更多不合法的團體和曖昧不明的規範)。她開始針對50個國家,並與政治社會學家、神經學家、電腦科學家、人類學家和考古學家深入探討,她終於得到新奇的結論:行為的造成漢感知受到威脅有極大的關聯。

"A groundbreaking analysis of what used to be an impenetrable mystery: how and why do cultures differ? Gelfand shows that a wide range of divides of class, culture, and coalition are traceable to an intriguing source. Anyone interested in our cultural divides will find tremendous insight in Rule Makers, Rule Breakers." - Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of Enlightenment Now

Why are clocks in Germany always correct, while those in Brazil are frequently wrong? Why are Singaporeans jailed for selling gum? Why do women in New Zealand have three times the sex of females worldwide? Why was the Daimler-Chrysler merger ill-fated from the start? And why does each generation of Americans give their kids weirder and weirder names?

Curious about the answers to these and other questions, award-winning social psychologist Michele Gelfand has spent two decades studying both tight societies (with clearly stated rules and codes of ethics) and loose societies (more informal communities with weak or ambiguous norms). Putting each under the microscope, she conducted research in more than fifty countries and collaborated with political scientists, neuroscientists, computer scientists, anthropologists, and archaeologists. Her fascinating conclusion: behaviour seems largely dependent on perceived threats. It's why certain nations seem predisposed to tangle with others; some American states identify as "Red" and others as "Blue"; and those attending a sports contest, health club, or school function behave in prescribed ways.

Rule Makers, Rule Breakers reveals how to predict national variations around the globe, why some leaders innovate and others don't, and even how a tight vs. loose system can determine happiness. Consistently riveting and always illuminating, Michele Gelfand's book helps us understand how a single cultural trait dramatically affects even the smallest aspects of our lives.

"Fascinating and profound...It's quite possibly this year's best book on culture." Roy F. Baumeister, bestselling co-author of Willpower and author of The Cultural Animal

"This brilliant book is full of well-documented insights that will change the way you look at yourself and at the world around you." Barry Schwartz, bestselling author of The Paradox of Choice, Practical Wisdom, and Why We Work
