About the model

The Culturetest is a tool based on the Dingemans & Janssen model of cultural differences. 

This model is a conceptual redevelopment of the model of Richard Lewis, which incorporates variables from the models of Geert Hofstede, Erin Meyer, Fons Trompenaars, Edward & Mildred Hall and Clyde & Florence Klukhohn.

This Culturetest measures your cultural profile according to that model, and is visualized - in a triangle - as a mix of three theoretical cultures; the Linear-active, Multi-active and Reactive culture types as defined by Richard Lewis.

The Dingemans & Janssen model of cultural differences measures these three theoretical cultures on 16 aspects of culture, divided into four blocks, ranging from visible communication styles, via hidden communication styles, via professional values to basic values.
