Joanna Schug on Relational Mobility, Cultural Confusion - HHH Ep. 63
Joanna Schug: relational mobility helps us understand why cultures differ from one another -- and why people can have difficulty adapting to a new culture.
"Psychologists really like thinking about what’s going on inside the minds of people. They're not so good about thinking about what’s going on outside of individuals."
What happens when you have a highly-mobile society where everyone has options to leave relationships? People will probably sort themselves into very fragmented categories -- which might inadvertently lower relational mobility.
