Anthony Charles O. Chen | Jericho Edward P. Arceo | Jose Alberto S. Reyes



The present study was conducted to examine the relationship between culture, context, and behavioral consistency. In an experimental study, we tested the hypotheses that there will be a significant interaction between socio-cultural environment and context on behavioral consistency. For the quantitative phase, we used a sample of 100 young adults with ages ranging from 26 to 45. A 2x2 mixed factorial ANOVA was used to test the hypotheses. Results showed no main effects but a significant interaction effect between culture and context F(1, 98) = 22.585, p < 0.05 on behavioral consistency which supports our hypothesis. Results of the study are discussed in the context of current literature on culture, behavioral consistency, context and well-being.
