### Yes, this struck me too. Naively I would think that individualists
would be less affected by social exclusion. The extremes, such as ASD
patients, hardly even notice being excluded. On the other hand, in very
collectivist cultures exclusion means a highly increased risk of death.
The study used exclusion manipulation by essay writing and by a rigged
computer game. How much does that reflect true social exclusion, especially
exclusion from life-critical communities? I am moderately skeptical about
the study design.
