Abstract

This study investigates the relationship between personality factors, cultural practices, and innovativeness at the national level. It is shown that the relationship between the nationally aggregated personality factors of openness to experience and agreeableness and national innovation is mediated by the national cultural practice dimensions of future orientation, institutional collectivism, in-group collectivism, performance orientation, and uncertainty avoidance.
