Talking about individualism, we should learn what is individual. Everyone is an individual. The community is made up of every individual. Individual is the basic element for the forming of a community. Therefore, individual plays an important role in the whole community. Looking at the success in the past hundred years in America, we see that individual in America has won its position in every corner.  People respect each other, not only respecting their personality, but their mind. One of typical American way is that Americans like to show their opinions openly in their own way, whatever it is, anger or fear, which is highly thought of.  So it is not difficult for us to get the reason why Americans prefer individualism.

I think in the USA, as in all countries, individualism is admired in some areas and looked down upon in other areas. It is only the areas where individualism is admired, that varies around the world.
Generally, broadly and statistically speaking, I have found that in career, personal life, friends, marriage and business, individualism is encouraged in the USA. It is frowned upon in spiritual and political areas. It is the opposite in India.

It is a myth that either individualism or collectivism is exclusive to ANY particular society. What specific areas get attention in the media or propaganda is usually skewed, selective and not always accurate.
