Authors : Edi Purwanto and Lelly Christin

Abstract: Purpose of the study is to investigate the impact of cultural openness on cosmopolitanism and mindedness world-and the correlation of cosmopolitanism with world-mindedness. Quantitative data analysis was employed to attain this objective. The 200 questionnaires were returned considered for this research. Most of the respondents are female (54%), younger people under 25 (80%) and had an income under IDR 1.5 million. To measure the constructs, four items of cosmopolitanism, four items of world-mindedness and three items of cultural openness were used. The three sections above used a 7-point Likert scale was used (1 = strongly disagree to 7 = strongly agree). Data were analysed via a Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) method using AMOS 21 Software. The findings of the study revealed that cultural openness has impact on cosmopolitanism, but it does not have effect on world-mindedness; cosmopolitanism does not correlate with world-mindedness. So although, cultural openness has led Indonesians toward a cosmopolitan perspective, cosmopolitanism can’t change Indonesian people to have world-mindedness. The result of the study provides new evidence about the effect of cultural openness on cosmopolitanism but cultural openness does not have effect on the world-mindedness view and cosmopolitanism does not correlate with the world-mindedness view.
