Human societies are sometimes negatively influenced by their neighbors. They resist the adoption of the neighbor's goals through isolation, through adoption of the neighbor's means and techniques, the better to resist the adoption of his goals, and by evolving customs deliberately at variance with, or the opposite of, the neighbor's ways. Thus, while response to means and techniques may seem positive, response to goals and ends is frequently negative. The problem is analysed both sociologically and psychologically.
