  8. 8. Value dimensionsare relativeThe country scores on the dimensions are relative –societies are compared to other societies.Without making a comparison a country score is meaningless.These relative scores have been proven to be quite stable over decades.The forces that cause cultures to shift tend to be global or continent-wide. Thismeans that they affect many countries at the same time, so that if theircultures shift, they shift together, and their relative positions remain the same.1000
