Beyond cultural boundary: An empirical study of the third culture theory
Unformatted Document Text:  ABSTRACT BEYOND CULTURAL BOUNDARY: AN EMPIRICAL STUDY OF THE THIRD CULTURE THEORY This study explores the “third culture theory” which has not been tested by quantified measures since it was introduced. This study develops the ten-item measurement of third culture based on equality, commonality and transcendence. Two hundred and fifteen international married individuals from 42 countries participated in a self-administered email survey. The hypothesis was tested on the relationships between intercultural stress (culture shock) and the degree of third culture building. The findings indicated that there is a negative relationship between the degree of third culture building and intercultural stress. Suggestions for future study as well as several implications on theory and methodology are discussed drawing on the experience of this study.

ABSTRACT
BEYOND CULTURAL BOUNDARY:
AN EMPIRICAL STUDY OF THE THIRD CULTURE THEORY
This study explores the “third culture theory” which has not been tested by quantified
measures since it was introduced. This study develops the ten-item measurement of third
culture based on equality, commonality and transcendence. Two hundred and fifteen
international married individuals from 42 countries participated in a self-administered email
survey. The hypothesis was tested on the relationships between intercultural stress (culture
shock) and the degree of third culture building. The findings indicated that there is a negative
relationship between the degree of third culture building and intercultural stress. Suggestions
for future study as well as several implications on theory and methodology are discussed
drawing on the experience of this study.
