Another strong finding in this study is that cities from Latin America (Brazil, Costa Rica,Mexico, El Salvador) and Spain were all above the mean in overall helping, and on averagewere more helpful than the other international cities. This difference can be attributed to theimportance of the cultural script of simpatia (in Spanish) or simpatico (in Portuguese) inLatin American and Hispanic cultures (Rodrigues & Assmar, 1988; Triandis et al., 1984).These terms, which have no equivalent in English, refer to a range of amiable social quali-ties—to be friendly, nice, agreeable, and good-natured (i.e., a person who is fun to be withand pleasant to deal with). Helping strangers is also part of this script. Simpatia and simpa-tico emphasize prioritizing amiable social behaviors as compared with, for example, empha-sizing achievement and productivity.This explanation in terms of simpatia is of course merely suggestive in that it iscorrelational. Other explanations are possible. All the simpatia cultures have primarilyRoman Catholic populations. Furthermore, these are societies that are cultures of honor. It isplausible that cultural traits associated with Roman Catholicism or the friendliness deriva-tive of honor cultures may be the crucial variable that accounts for the higher rates of helpingamong Hispanic cultures.
We conducted a Procrustes Factors Analysis for all scales, including prevention focus (cautiousness, dutifulness), self-regulation strength (impulse control), need for structure, and self-monitoring ability. For the personal need for structure scale, the normative EFA revealed that, as expected, the 8 items loaded cleanly onto two factors: desire for structure and response to lack of structure. When the cultural samples were subjected to procrustes rotation, the identity coefficient for the desire for structure factor exceeded the .90 cutoff for all 33 countries, but the identity coefficient for the response to lack of structure factor only met the .90 cutoff for 17 countries.
The data showed that Southern Asian and Confucian Asian nations are the tightest (M = 11.69, SD= 0.62 and M = 8.64, SD = 1.84respectively) and Eastern European nations are loosest (M = 3.60, SD = 1.65). Nordic/Germanic European (M= 6.04, SD = 2.21), Latin European(M = 5.87, SD = 1.80), Anglo (M = 5.09, SD = 1.30), and Latin American (M = 4.78, SD = 2.11) nations are in the mid-range.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Cultural impacts exist, certainly. This is why there is not, and will never be, a Spanish uberalliance based on language, like "the Russians".
