Abstract

We propose to compare Romania’s World Value Surveys data with those of other three countries/nations, to which Romanians can straightforwardly relate: Germany, Ukraine and Turkey. With this approach, any WVS-derived qualitative or quantitative conclusions may be further subjected to correlation with empirical data available to the reader either from numerous other sources or, if familiar with the region, from their own experience. David has recently performed a comparative analysis of Romania with the USA, employing beyond the WVS data a large number of his own experimental efforts in the field of psychology. One may only anticipate that the present effort can reach qualitatively similar conclusions, with the added differences that (1) the comparison here is set against more closely-related cultures and (2) we seek to project such comparisons directly against the our newly-proposed biochemically-meaningful Entropy / Inertia / Assimilatory-expansion coordinate system rather than what we perceive as more complicated Schwartz or Hofstede coordinate systems (wherein one finds notions not readily generalizable in a biochemical sense and hence, to our opinion, arguably arbitrary or artificial).

Keywords: World Value Surveys, Romania, Schwartz, Hofstede, public discourse, entropy, culture
