Characterize the united states culture according to the five categories of value orientation theory:man-nature,activity, time,human nature, relational. What is your view on Us culture. I am reading a book about the US cultures. I just wanted to hear or read someone else views. Thank you.

Trying to characterize the U.S. culture is extremely difficult because of our diversity of ethnic, political, religious, cultural, and economic groups. At the risk of seeming cynical, I'd say that at this time the majority of Americans are selfish and value money over most other values.

This site may help you.

Not cynical at all, more of a realist, if you ask me.
