Which cultural type are you?

Based on The Lonely Crowd, there are three main cultural types: tradition-directed, inner-directed, and other-directed.

Tradition-directed social types obeyed rules established a long time in the past and rarely succeeded in modern society, with its dynamic changes.

This earliest social type was succeeded by people who were inner-directed. They discovered the potential within themselves to live and act not according to established norms but based on what they discovered using their own inner gyroscope. Inner-directed people live as adults what they learned in childhood, and tend to be confident, sometimes rigid.

...other-directed people were flexible and willing to accommodate others to gain approval. "The other-directed person wants to be loved rather than esteemed," not necessarily to control others but to relate to them. Those who are other-directed need assurance that they are emotionally in tune with others.

5A mix of these.

I think I'm a mix of inner and other. Definitely not tradition.

Based on the wikipedia link; mostly other-directed, both the good and bad parts of it.

I've shifted; I was other directed; now I'm a mixture of inner and tradition directed.

I would say mostly inner-directed with a small smattering of other-directed.

Pretty equal combination of each.
