I was trying to describe the difference between individualist and collectivist societies. But I used the word “framing” by mistake and was called out on it. So I admitted I didn’t know the right word to use. I knew it was stronger than schema but that was it. And they said: I think it’s paradigm. [that is, they have different paradigms] I looked up the definition to be doubly sure and yes, that is in fact the best word for that.
