I looked at the cross-country data, and here are some areas which Singapore ranks highly or lowly in. As shown in the charts below, Singapore ranks highly on obedience, but much lower in self-expression and imagination. Putting these together sheds some light on why Singaporeans are sometimes perceived to be conformist and not very creative.
Also, quite worrying is how Singapore is ranked right at the bottom for tolerance and respect for other people, as shown in the last chart.
