Exploring differences in culture
As an Israeli living amongst the English, I am fascinated by the cultural differences I see.
English culture is a lot more polite than ours, and there’s a great emphasis on avoiding confrontation. So they won’t (normally) tell you to your face that they disagree with you, they’d present their disagreement in a roundabout way. Like if someone says grass is red, the other person won’t say “no, grass is green” (I’ve been told that’s rude in English terms) but they might say: “ah, yes, it is a kind of shade of red in a certain light, isn’t it… though I’ve found that usually it seems greenish to me…”
What about your culture? How do people normally handle these situations?
