Collectivism is to put the thoughts and feelings others e.g. the rest of the family above your own needs e.g. in China if you are gay you are expected to marry a woman and keep it quiet

Individualism is to be independent by habit and in control of your own thoughts and feelings e.g. in English culture a person is encouraged to celebrate the fact that they are gay
