Cultural Adaptation Factors and States
16
(INSERT TABLE 2 HERE)
Korean managers and Mexican workers showed different ratings at the .05 level
of significance on all variables except for time (See Table 3). Korean managers recorded
a significantly higher rating on preparation, communication, anticipation state, and valley
state than Mexican workers. On the other hand, Mexican workers recorded a significantly
higher rating on expectation, peak state, and smooth state than Korean managers.

Hypotheses Results
Pearson correlation was used to test for relationships between the hypothesized
impacts of preparation, expectation, communication skills, and time, with each culture on
the anticipation, peak, valley, and smooth states of adaptation. Results show support for
eight and seven of the 15 hypotheses for Koreans and Mexicans, respectively.
Among Korean managers, positive relationships between the level of preparation
and the anticipation state (r=.50, p<.001), peak state (r=.47, p<001), and smooth state
(r=.31, p<.05) were detected in the sample as hypothesized and these relationships were
statistically significant at the .05 level. These results support hypotheses 1, 2, and 4.
Meanwhile, there was a negative relationship (r= -.06) between preparation and valley
stage in the sample as hypothesized, however, it was not statistically significant (See
Table 4).
