Father Knows Best” [analysis paper] (20 pts.)
Instructions: Hofstede scores the U.S. (macro-cultural level) in particular ways concerning its positions in terms of “cultural value dimensions/patterns” (see chart below). Given what these scores indicate (that the U.S. leans more toward one side of the dichotomies than the to the other side), choose three of the dimensions/patterns provided and discuss why/how the 1956 “Father Knows Best” episode, Betty, Girl Engineer, represents said dimension/pattern. Give at least two complete examples from the episode as evidence for each dimension/pattern discussed.
