Request for your assistance: The wisdom of crowds: Iran Culture Areas

Under the auspices of the Preferred Leader Behaviour and Values Project, I am engaged with a colleague in investigating relationships amongst preferred leader behaviour dimensions and cultural value dimensions in Iran. One interest we have is the existence of culture areas in Iran. The project has found regional differences in China, for example, in culture and leader preferences.

If you are a native of Iran, or expert in the region, as a starting point we’d like to enlist your support in gathering opinions as to existence of culture areas. For example, we will investigate regions defined by the predominant language spoken, and hypothesise we might find leadership and value differences amongst regions defined by Farsi, Azeri, Kurdish, Arabic, Balochi, and Turkmen. In your opinion, what other regions exist that might have influences, and why?
