Krishna and colleagues Rongrong Zhou, of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Shi Zhang, of UCLA Anderson School of Management, designed a series of experiments to test participants' thinking styles. The participants came from both Eastern (China, Hong Kong) and Western (United States) regions. The researchers found participants could be divided into two distinct categories: independent thinkers (self-focused) and interdependent thinkers (relationship-focused). Krishna and her team discovered significant differences between Eastern and Western participants.
