I think the world would be a better place if China and America got along, and perhaps that begins with Chinese and Americans getting along better...

I'm talking about are the cultural and value differences between "us" as Americans and them as those who were born and raised in Mainland China...

I believe we all want to better understand China, but more importantly, we want China's integration with the West to lead to greater prosperity for all and not greater conflict that seems to be perpetuated by the media on both sides.

MY THESIS is our (American) cultural biases toward China lead us towards greater conflict and dilemmas that can only be solved by learning to "think different" about Chinese people, and MY MISSION is to improve US-China relations one relationship at a time.

    MAIN difference between Chinese and Westerners

    MAIN difference between Chinese and Westerners

    MAJOR Cultural Difference #1: TRUTH

    • Westerners believe in ABSOLUTE truth (that focuses on literal meanings and definitions)
    • Chinese believe in RELATIVE truth (which is a more figurative way of communicating)

    MAJOR Cultural Difference #2: TRUST

    • Westerners tend to trust people they perceive as HONEST
    • Chinese tend to trust people they perceive will give them PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT, in other words, those they have Guanxi relationships with

    MAJOR Cultural Difference #3: AUTHORITY

    • Westerners are taught to obey RULES and LAWS
    • Chinese are conditioned to obey PEOPLE (who have the authority to selectively enforce the laws)

    Understanding these MAJOR cultural differences will enable you to develop greater cultural awareness and empathy towards Chinese people .... And this will lead you to a more rewarding and prosperous experience in China.

    What's the difference between Chinese state-controlled media and America's Fake News

    What's the difference between Chinese state-controlled media and America's Fake News

    Hey Little Buddy, let's discuss how interconnected everyone on the planet is...

    Generational ABC Podcast - Season I Episode 12 -- Access to more information doesn't make us wiser or less prone to conflict. Having too narrow view of history, cultural biases, and righteous values can make conflict inevitable. Taking a more holistic view of history within a broader perspective can reduce the likelihood of conflict.

    Guanxi and teamwork are two completely different concepts

    Guanxi and teamwork are two completely different concepts

    Hey Little Buddy, let's discuss why teamwork is not easy with Chinese...

    Generational ABC Podcast - Season I Episode 11 -- China views history in millennia, not centuries or decades, so their perspective will naturally be in conflict with the American view. Collectively, Chinese believe history is on their side, and they believe Westerners and Western media are full of hypocrites.
