Individualism versus collectivism:  In countries where individualism prevails, values of individual achievement, freedom, and competition are stressed. In countries where collectivism prevails, values of group harmony, cohesiveness, and consensus are very strong, and the importance of cooperation and agreement between individuals is stressed.

Power distance: Countries that allow inequalities to persist or increase are said to have high power distance.  Countries that dislike the development of large inequality gaps between their citizens
are said to have low power distance.

Achievement versus nurturing orientation: Countries that are achievement oriented value assertiveness, performance, success, and competition and are results oriented. Countries that are nurturing oriented value the quality of life, warm personal relationships, and service and care for the weak.

Uncertainty avoidance: Countries low on uncertainty avoidance are easygoing, value diversity, and are tolerant of differences in what people believe and do. Countries high on uncertainty avoidance tend to be rigid and intolerant.

Long-term versus short -term orientation: A long-term orientation is likely to be the result of values that include thrift and persistence. A short-term orientation is likely to be the result of values that express a concern for maintaining personal stability or happiness and for living in the present.
