Americans don't like to do things for the "greater good" according to a new study. For the study, scientists prompted a group of Stanford students to think about either independence or interdependence and then gave them a difficult word puzzle to solve. Later, they gave the participants a physical challenge. They found that "chronically independent European Americans" fared much worse when primed to think about interdependence while completeing the tasks. For the Asian-American students, both the indepedence-loving American culture and the more communally based East-Asian culture, meant that they found thinking about either value set equally motivating. The study was published in Psychological Science.
