Cultural and ethnic influence on proxemic behavior and invasions of personal space were investigated. 173 Chinese Singaporean undergraduates rated minimum interpersonal distance for perceived male intruders from four ethnic groups in Singapore--Malay, Indian, Chinese, and Caucasian. Rated distance scores ranked from "most distant" Indian Chinese dyads decreasing (in order of minimum distance) through Malay-Chinese. Caucasian-Chinese, and Chinese-Chinese dyads, independent of sex.
