Rather than assuming that cause resides with individuals who personally control and direct outcomes in the environment, interdependent selves perceive action holistically, and assume that cause resides with the surrounding context (Nisbett, Peng, Choi, & Noranzayan, 2001).
Instead of focusing on the process by which interdependent selves are attuned to others and promote group harmony, we examine how they are attuned to others yet promote self-interest. We argue in this paper that the exercise of personal agency, even under this ‘‘Western’’ deﬁnition of the term, is still compatible with an interdependent orientation. Speciﬁcally, we question the assumption that the boundary between self and ingroup is blurred, such that there is either no conﬂict between individual and group goals, or if there is a conﬂict, the interdependent individual resolves it by adjusting to the group.
