New study from RICE, Columbia and NC, says that sense of self is clarified by living abroad

From EurekaAlert! :

“Living abroad can clarify your sense of self, according to new research by a team of social scientists at Rice University, Columbia University and the University of North Carolina.”

I, sadly, don’t have access to this study without purchasing it, but I’d be really interested to know if this is culturally centered around the US or if the participants were international. If the participants were all US-based, have cultural differences been accounted for ?
