Living Abroad Leads to a Clearer Sense of Self – Columbia Business School Blog
Social scientists from Columbia Business School, Rice, and UNC universities have recently published new research in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes that finds how “living abroad increases “self-concept clarity.”
The findings came after the group surveyed roughly 2,000 “participants from online panels and United States and international MBA programs” that had, at one point, studied abroad.
Entitled “The Shortest Path to Oneself Leads Around the World: Living Abroad Increases Self-Concept Clarity,” the study reveals that “living abroad triggers self-discerning reflections in which people grapple with the different cultural values and norms of their home and host cultures. These reflections are helpful in discovering which values and norms define who people are and which simply reflect their cultural upbringing.”
