Comments: Different societies face different tasks concerning competition. For Hungarians, like other nations in a transition between the former socialist system that banned competition and the new democratic, market economy, it is crucially significant to find ways to accept competition and develop modes of competition that are constructive for both the individual and the society. Comparing Hungarian young people?s ideas with Japanese and Americans gives insights into the similarities and differences we can find in the social and personal construction of competition among these historically and culturally very different societies.
