AbstractTversky’s (1977) diagnosticity principle implies that categorization affects similarity, and
that similarity in turn is based on context. However, Nisbett, Peng, Choi, and Norenzayan
(2001) suggest that Chinese and Westerners differ in their sensitivity to context and
categorization. Because of these differences, it is not clear whether Chinese should follow the diagnosticity principle. To explore these possibilities, we conducted a cross-cultural experiment using participants from Australia and China to repeat the experiment of Tversky (1977) using schematic faces as stimuli. Results showed that Australians, but
not Chinese, made similarity judgments in a manner compatible with the diagnosticity
principle. We suggest that: 1) the use of the diagnosticity principle depends upon contextualvariables for Chinese people; and 2) Chinese participants judged neutral schematic faces asmore positive than Western participants did
