Recent research has demonstrated that cultural groups differ in how they experience ostracism and in how they

cultural variable, social interdependence, plays in moderating responses to ostracism. Although the data present a

interdependence are associated with less negative responses to ostracism. We review explanations for observed cultural

hope, will disambiguate current findings and offer a more nuanced picture of ostracism and the significance of cultural

variation inherent within it.
