How are people of different countries different from each other? Share your experiences..Please don't be harsh on anyone!
Most foreigners have a lot of misconceptions about my country. Sometimes it annoys me.
I never knew about the eye contact thing..Thanks for sharing!
i respect people from the other countries their traditions and their languages
I have met many people from many different countries and I like to think that we are all alike in terms of deciding right from wrong.
Of course the are differences in behaviour. Taking of your shoes inside the house, what you eat, your religion, things that can be regarded as culture or regional/historic roots.
Then again, in 2012, I don't think there should be major differences in behaviour anymore. In certain countries, taxi drivers will take more money from me than they would from a local. In other countries, I should avoid eye contact.
But from my view, these are not things that makes them any different from me. Politeness, respect, empathy should be universal.
Thats very true!
