    Sammanfattning

    Cultural and gender differences in guilt and shame (Tangney's TOSCA) and value priorities (the Schwartz Value Survey) were studied in samples of Finnish (N = 156) and Peruvian (N = 159) adolescents. As expected, the Peruvians were more collectivistic and traditional than the Finns. In line with hypotheses derived from previous research, gender differences were larger and more stereotypical among the Finns than among the Peruvians. Finnish girls were more prone to guilt and shame than boys were, whereas among the Peruvians there was no gender difference in guilt, and boys were more shame-prone than girls. Gender differences in values were smaller for the Peruvians than for the Finns. The results support the view that psychological gender differences are largest in modern, individualistic societies.
