Purpose – The study aims to investigate a possible application of the concepts of individualist and collectivist (I-C) value traits in inquiries on alcohol drinking norms in different alcohol cultures.
Design/methodology/approach – Data from focus group discussions (
Findings – The study shows that the features identified in the I-C dichotomy regarding personality traits and parental goal for children correlate with some culturally anchored meaning-making of agency and autonomy emphasized in judgements of correct ways of drinking.
Originality/value – The authors conclude that with certain caveats I-C dichotomy could indeed be applied more in the cross-cultural alcohol research.
