Academics are one social group that has a unique role and responsibility (e.g. in university teaching and research). They are even more distinct, as a social group, when cultural factors are taken into account. This study aims to identify the factors that influence Chinese Indonesian academics, as well as investigate the role of those factors when dealing with issues in the society. The method of investigation is interpretative phenomenological analysis, specifically through interviews, focus group discussion, studying historical documents, and observation. Data are collected between 2011 and 2013. The participants are 8 Chinese Indonesian academics; all have doctorate degree from reputable overseas universities. Three age groups by birth involved in this study: Pre-World War II generation (3 participants), Post-World War II generation (3 participants), and generation X (2 participants). The results show that despite the dominance of individual differences, there is a shared pattern between the participants of a generation, as well as across generations. The socio-cultural context in the historical perspective is found to have a high impact on the mindset of the participants. The outcome of this study can become a model of mindset formation that takes into account the varying socio-cultural context people live in
