We tested participants from the United States, China, India, and Singapore. U.S. participants reported higher average levels of trait authenticity than those from Eastern cultures (i.e., China, India, Singapore), but this effect was partially explained by cultural differences in self-construal and thinking style. Importantly, the experience of state authenticity, and especially state inauthenticity, was more similar than different across cultures. In all, people from different cultures do experience authenticity, even if they do not endorse the (Western) value of “independence.” The findings contribute to a more nuanced understanding of state authenticity.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Trait and State Authenticity Across Cultures</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Lenton, Alison P.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Slabu, Letitia</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bruder, Martin</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Slabu, Letitia</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-11-26T10:29:23Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Sedikides, Constantine</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
