Author:Plocher, T., Goonetilleke, R.S., Yan, Z. & S-F.M. Liang
Abstract:Time orientation, is potentially an important consideration in designing task environments and user interfaces for cross-cultural audiences. Several researchers have proposed questionnaire methods to evaluate the monochronicity or polychronicity (M-P) of people, but the questions that compose these instruments vary widely from one instrument to another. In this paper, we present a few different methods to quantify M-P and present results from 181 respondents to show the differences among different countries.
