Abstract:

The Rosetta-II Project Measuring National Differences is a multinational cultural cognition research project involving teams from Japan, Korea, Malaysia, India, China, and the United States. The objective of the project is to expand upon measures developed in Rosetta I. Investigators at each site focused on the following 1 developing a set of perceptual and simple cognitive measures that can validly predict complex cognition conceptually related to sensemaking in natural contexts, 2 delineating the relationships between these simple measures and complex cognitive functions, and 3 determining national differences in cognitive measures. In addition to the common measurement tools to be used for the research, the Korean and Japanese teams explored the development of measures for Holism and Decision Making Behavior, respectively. A separate report combining data from all the Rosetta II investigators is being prepared by Dr. Helen Klein under a separate contract with Ball Aerospace Corporation, Dayton, Ohio.
