  • Evaluation of Cultural variations (van ijz & kroo)
    • Weaknesses
      • some of the samples were very small
        • e.g. only one study in UK, sweden and china
          • may result in biased conclusions - sample used may not be representative of the whole population
      • meta-analysis (drawing together the findings of different research teams)
        • if the various teams carried out the technique slightly differently their results could not be reliably compared
    • Strengths
      • a truly cross-cultural study
        • van ijzendoorn & kroonenberg did make sure to obtain a mix of collectivist and individualist cultures for comparison
          • aim of the study was achieved
