In Hungary, as in many other high-context cultures, communication takes on a nuanced and intricate form. It is a culture where unspoken cues, gestures, and shared experiences play a significant role in conveying meaning. In such societies, individuals often rely on their deep-seated understanding of social norms, cultural traditions, and historical context to interpret messages accurately. As researchers undertaking online research in Hungary, being aware of the high context nature of communication becomes crucial during the process of crafting survey questions and interpreting responses. Moreover, Hungary, like many other countries, has stringent data protection laws in place to safeguard individuals' personal information. The storage and handling of data collected during the research must be secure and compliant with GDPR standards. This may include encryption of data, restricted access to sensitive information, and implementing measures to prevent data breaches or unauthorized access.
