Hofstede's Cultural Dimension concept is frequently employed in cross-cultural communication,
international management, and cross-cultural psychology.
The dimensions are:
1. The Power Distance Index is the first dimension in Hofstede's Cultural Dimension
hypothesis. It pertains to the disparity between those in positions of authority and those
who do not. A lower score indicates that people are challenging authority and attempting
to redistribute power. A higher score, on the other hand, indicates that a social hierarchy
has already been created.
2. Individualism vs. Collectivism is the next degree in Hofstede's Cultural Dimension
hypothesis (IDV). It investigates the degree to which members in society are
incorporated into a certain group, the bonds that members have within their community,
and the perception of group dependency and duty.
3. Masculinity vs. Femininity is the next degree in Hofstede's Cultural Dimension
hypothesis (MAS). In a community, it involves the allocation of male and female roles.
4. The Uncertainty Avoidance Index is the next dimension in Hofstede's Cultural
Dimension Hypothesis (UAI). It is typically defined as a culture's tolerance threshold for
unpredictability or ambiguity, and it pertains to how individuals manage uneasiness
in society.
5. Long-Term vs. Short-Term Orientation is the next dimension in Hofstede's Cultural
Dimension Hypothesis (LTO). It focuses on the relationship between past, present, and
future issues. 6. Indulgence vs. Restraint is the sixth dimension in Hofstede's Cultural Dimension theory
(IVR). It evaluates society's proclivity to accomplish its objectives.
