The Perception of Turkey and the World among the Business Community Professionals

Abstract The advancement and spread of communication technologies, staying informed about everything and easy access to information, witnessing different lifestyles and cultures, the hegemony of international powers and the discomfort caused by it, individuals becoming more and more isolated in this globalising, communicating and standardising world caused the rise of localisation or in other words globalisation. A new type of person has emerged, someone who can not let go of the past, who benefits perfectly from today’s blessings, who has ambitious objectives for the future and who is passionate yet concerned. The fact that individuals are even more informed about what is going on in the world and in their countries results in forming a perception in their minds about the world as well as their own countries. Regardless of one’s socio-economic status, education level and cultural sophistication, now all individuals hold an opinion, though not information. For this reason, to determine the feelings, opinions, concerns, and tendencies of people it is critical to understand their perception vis-a-vis the world and their countries. This study aims to put forward goal-oriented research as well as data acquired from a quite acceptable sample. The scientific data of the study has been compiled between 2011–2014 and from a sample of 1020 respondents working in ten different sectors in Turkey.

Keywords: Perception, Communication, Glocalisation.
