Extreme Family-Centeredness (Weaknesses of the Filipino Character)

Extreme Family-Centeredness. While concern for the family is one of the Filipino’s greatest strengths, in the extreme it becomes a serious flaw. excessive concern for the family creates an in-group to which the Filipino is fiercely loyal to the detriment of concern for the larger community or for the common good.

Excessive concern for family manifests itself in the use of one’s office and power as a means of promoting the interest of the family, in factionalism, patronage, and political dynasties and in the protection of erring family members. It results in lack of concern for the common good and it acts as a block to national consciousness.
