Abstract: We proposed a model suggesting how national goals for socializing children moderate the contributions made by the individual??s level of in- and out-group trust to his or her level of trust in most people, namely, non-specific trust. Consistent with our hypotheses, a two-level hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) analysis of representative data across 49 countries from the World Values Survey indicates that the individual’s level of trust in people known personally is a predictor of non-specific trust for persons of all national groups but a stronger predictor in countries emphasizing socialization for Self-directedness as opposed to Other-directedness. The individual’s trust in out-groups is likewise a predictor of non-specific trust for all national groups but a stronger predictor in countries emphasizing socialization for Self-directedness as well as for Civility as opposed to Practicality. Although trust in the family is not a significant predictor of non-specific trust across all national groups, it predicts non-specific trust in those countries characterized by socialization for Self-directedness. Our findings have important implications for the impact of variation in socialization practices for human capital formation and associated management practices across national cultures.
