Кросс-культурное исследование особенностей эмоционального контроля (Россия, Азербайджан)
We test the measurement invariance of Emotional Control Values (ECV) questionnaire by A. Mauss which measures the value of emotional control and self-efficacy of emotional control; the study uses samples from Russia (N=256) and Azerbaijan (N=205). Using multi-group confirmatory factor analysis we developed partial scalar invariance models which allow to compare the latent factor parameters across the two countries. Respondents from Azerbaijan score higher on the value of emotional control and lower on emotional control self-efficacy, compared to respondents from Russia. In Russia males have higher scores on both value and self-efficacy of emotional control, compared to females, but in the Azerbaijani sample no significant gender differences in emotional control were found. We discuss the results based on the existing data on the differences between the two cultures in individualism-collectivism.
