A comparison of cross-cultural psychology and taijiquan

This article connects literature in cross-cultural psychology with the study of Taijiquan. Cross-cultural psychology has found two main differences between the typical East Asian and Westerner. East Asians emphasize an interdependent self-concept and holistic cognition while Westerners emphasize an independent self-concepts and analytic cognition. Taijiquan, as a systematized component of Chinese culture, stresses both the interdependent self and holistic cognition. The study of Taijiquan is also the study of the East Asian self and cognition.
