Cultures nurture different views of what is desirable and meaningful to do with power. In some collectivistic cultures (such as those in most of Latin America), power is for benefiting and helping others, whereas in some individualistic cultures (such as those in most of North America), power is for advancing one's personal status and prestige. Professor Torelli will discuss the psychological, political, and marketing consequences of these culturally nurtured conceptualizations of power.
