Hofstede Masculinity / Femininity Exercise

Traits of Masculinity / Femininity Exercise

The purpose of the exercise is to make the student think with a sociological perspective not come up with definitive answers.  The instructor should pick a country other than the student’s passport country for comparison.  I have used Thailand vs. US but any two countries can be used for this exercise.  The instructor should pick a country the students are very familiar with, possibly a neighboring country that the students often visit.

Which country is more masculine in the subareas below?
