Hi, I'm a student in Belgium and i need to work on a projet about New Zeland ( it's for my final exam). I need to reply to a few questions, so if someone have some time, please help me ^-^" :
1) The nature of people

What do people assume about the basic nature and beliefs about other people? In particular, others may be considered to be good, bad or have some combination.

'Good' here is in the traditional sense of being socially oriented. A bad person is thus considered selfish.

How you think about other people in this way will have significant effect on how you respond to them. It also affects how you think about yourself.

2) The relationship with nature

What do people think about nature and their responsibilities and rights around it?

Some people believe that we should live in harmony with nature, preserving and supporting it. Others (and perhaps a majority now) see nature as our servant and supplier. This view allows us to plunder it without concern.

In other parts of life this translates into the use of all kinds or resource and whether it is used up or sustained.

3) Mode of activity

What is the primary mode of activity in an organization or society?

In some societies, there is a focus on 'being', where who you are is more important than what you do. Other societies are very action oriented and status comes from what has been achieved rather than an ascribed status.

4) Temporal orientation

Which is more important: past, present or future?

Some societies focus on the past, ancestors and traditionalism. Others are focused on the hedonism of today, whilst still others plan carefully for the future.

Thank you for your comprehension, hope someone could help me

1) The nature of people
White ones good, Brown ones bad [keep well clear]
2]The relationship with nature
Mostly good, but the Maoris have no idea of ecology and litter their land with car wrecks and fridges.
3) Mode of activity
The white folks are very work orientated, while the Maoris sit around looking for handouts.
4) Temporal orientation
Present is much rosier than the awful specter of the future, as the brown skins are outbreeding us at an alarming rate, the country is doomed!
