Abstract

Time orientation, which categorizes behaviors as monochronic or polychronic, is potentially an important consideration as it can influence the manner in which an operator interacts with complex systems. Differences among cultures have already been shown using measurement scales such as the Modified Polychronic Attitude Index 3 (MPAI3) and the Inventory of Polychronic Values (IPV). This paper is an attempt to show further differences between the two groups and present a hypothetical model for the potential causes of these differences using performance resource functions.
