How far does It seem that values In society appear to conform with the theories Globalization can be defined as the removing of borders and process, by which regional economies, societies and cultures. There are several factors of spreading of global culture such as communication and technology that might lead people around the world interact for many reasons: friendship, investment, business, and education. Moreover, for each community, the understanding of culture difference and communication across culture are required. Hypotheses model of culture is one of hurry that uses to distinguish the group of people in the country from others.The research on cultural behaviors in many countries around the world, which describe to a model of five cultural dimensions: Power Distance, Individualism, Masculinity, uncertainty Avoidance, and Long-Term Orientation were started (Hefted 2001, p. 9).
This essay will discuss on the differences of culture between Eastern culture style and Western culture style of Thailand by Including three out of five Hoisted theory dimension. Furthermore, this essay will show how people should deal with libations of the culture. According to Hypotheses cultural dimensions, power distance is the first dimension to discuss Thai society in nowadays.
It is relate to the idea of inequalities in institution and organizations in each country (Munson, 2005). For example, Thailand is scored at twenty-two power distance rankings for fifty countries and three regions, which is actually lower than an average of other countries (land, 2010). Within Thai historical period, there were countless evidences showing that Thailand had royalty system to govern the country for long period. Thus, Thai people society was discriminated by the Feudal system, which has been affect to organizational settings In present time.In addition, to show the respect for those of higher position, moreover, Thai employees, students and younger people should not call boss, teacher and older by name directly Instead of Mr.. , Mrs.
. At present time, although many Dhal people very emphasize on modesty and never act Improperly to older people or superior, today, employees and young people have been accepted to show a different opinion and comment, but they should carefully to using very polite scapulars and indirect word. Hence, it show that Thai society is examined their culture to high power distance in education, main society and workplace.The second dimension of Hovercraft’s theory to analyze Thai association is individualism and collectivism. Those ideas refer to identify group, separate and private values.
Individualist culture people are more freedom in their own decisions than collective, which is acceptable among their groups or family . Due to Hypotheses individualism ranking for fifty countries and three regions table, Thailand is scored at thirty-nine to arty-one, which presents collectivism society Monad, 2010). Thai societies are extent family, which Is a big family Including grandparent, parent and some family have uncle, aunt, grandchild, nephew as well.Dhal people have a very close relation with their family, so it influent to privately decision. Moreover. In the workplace, some Thai company usually follow the majority to accept the idea among their groups. Thai people though that should not outstanding from the group or leader. (Munson, 2005) However, the education and technology impact on culture .
For example, there are a lot of Thai people who live in rural area change their heritage to Bangkok, a capital city of Thailand, for study and work then it might be cause of increasing of nuclear family (Almandine,1995).As result, This is one of the collective societies, but in the further it might change to be more independent. Finally. The third dimension of Hoofer’s ‘s theory that will be talked in this essay is masculine and feminine culture. This idea describe about sex equality in culture and show that man ‘s social role more varied from culture to culture than women’s( Munson, 2005). Thailand is scored at forty-four in masculinity ranking for 50 countries and three regions, implies that Thailand is a feminine society.
Monad, 2010).Unfortunately, Within Thai society, gender is not considered as a main factor to block people from Job. Thai women in present time go out to work and have high education and they can sit in the high position in the workplace. For example, the current prime minister of Thailand is woman, Youngling Sinatra,(Sidney 2011). However, gender equality still needs to be concerned in some workplace. Although, Thai women have opportunity to study and work like man, it is also have some kind of work that is not suitable for them such as soldier and police.
To sum up, within the global society has been impact by technology on culture, in Thai association as well. To assess Thailand culture according to Hypotheses theory by choosing three of five dimensions show that Thailand tends to be a high power distance in society, low level individualism and more feminist. Nevertheless, today, Hypotheses model of culture quite changed from the previous time because many factor such as education, technology and immunization, which might affect to culture and people behaviors in the further.
