Object is to expose the influence of the cultural dimensions of Hofstede (1991) on the emotional prototypes (expression and physical reactions) and intensity. Also, the emotions are analyzed in relation with the self-reliance with success, interdependent, instrumental and expressive self-concept measured by the questionnaire of attitudes individualist-collectivists of Triandis et al. (1988), the scale of construction of the self (Singelis, 1994) and the Bem Sex Role Inventory (Bem, 1974). The cross-cultural research has been carried out with a sample of 5.328 universities students belonging to 29 nations of Europe, Asia, Africa and America. The results indicate that collectivistic cultures are characterized by self-reliance and success and interdependent self-concept. The masculine societies will be distinguished for an instrumental self-concept and the nations with a power distance will show a smaller expression of the negative emotions of sadness and anger.
