Cultural Adaptation Factors and States
18
Among Mexican workers, positive relationships between the level of expectation
and the anticipation state (r=.40, p<.001), peak state (r=.36, p<001), and smooth state
(r=.24, p<01) were detected in the sample as hypothesized and these relationships were
statistically significant at the .05 level. These results supported hypotheses 5, 6, and 8.
There was a negative relationship (r= -.11) between expectation and the valley state in the
sample as hypothesized, however, it was not statistically significant (See Table 5).
As well, among Mexican workers, positive relationships between communication
skills and the anticipation state (r=.29, p<.001) and peak state (r=.22, p<.01), and a
negative relationship between communication skills and the valley state (r= -.17, p<.05)
were detected in the sample as hypothesized and these relationships were statistically
significant at the .05 level. These results supported hypothesis 9, 10, and 11. There was a
positive relationship (r= .12) between communication skills and the smooth stage in the
sample as hypothesized, however, it was not statistically significant (See Table 5).
Finally, among Mexican workers, there was no statistically significant
relationships between time in contact with the Korean culture and any of the four
adaptation states. These results did not support hypotheses 13, 14, and 15.
Discussion
Overall, results of our statistical testing for correlations found eight of the 15
possible correlations with significant standing for Koreans and seven for Mexicans.
The following section attempts to analyze and discuss these findings. As in the last
section, we will first discuss our findings in terms of frequencies and the T-Test, in order
to show a background understanding, and then focus on the correlation results.
