Abstract/Summary This paper continues work published in several recent articles examining the cultural dimensions in the Hofstede and GLOBE models. Specifically we look at the dimension of Collectivism. We examine the relationships between Hofstede Individualism and the GLOBE Institutional Collectivism (IC) and GLOBE In-Group Collectivism (IGC) dimensions. We explain the correlations between these dimension scores. We also recommend that IC be relabelled simply Collectivism and IGC be labelled Familial Empathy reflecting the content of the GLOBE questionnaire items for these dimensions. We demonstrate that IC practices and values are negatively correlated as a result of both the effects of wealth in different societies and also the effects of "deprivation/abundance". Finally, we recommend that IC practices be used in future research on firm/manager practices and IV values for research involving firm/manager aspirations.
