The aim of this research is to explore the influence of culture, which understood in a broader sense, as focused towards the uncertainties in modern societies. Using theory and empirical data, we will determine the logic and dynamics of changes and the attitude towards changes and uncertainties in modern societies. This article, based on a theoretical thesis, empirically tests the correlation between the index of globalization and different indicators of individualism, as well as the attitude towards uncertainty and reflectiveness. We managed to prove the correlation between the globalization index and indicators of individualism. However, when we look at the links between the indicators of uncertainty and reflexivity, the correlations prove to be complex and inconsistent.

Keywords: globalisation, uncertainty, indicators
