Description

Men and women are different and are likely to have different orientations toward stress, tasks, and relationships. To explore the stress, task, and relationship orientation of people in the high-context culture of Taiwan, this paper focused on the differences of 249 adult Taiwanese. It appears that they have similar scores on the relationship and task orientations. However, males seem to be more task-oriented than female Taiwanese. Overall, the Taiwanese reported a moderate level of stress and they have an equal focus on their tasks and relationships. In this paper, literature on high and low context cultures is presented along with practical application, suggestions and implications for future studies.
