Understanding of Chinese/Asian culture vs. Western…
This is an interesting resesarch. Many people know the fundamental cultural differences between the East and the West but fail to articulate. I was forwarded this brilliant visual presentation of Asian culture vs. Western culture. Since Chinese is a dominate race in Asia, I must say that this reflects more Chinese culture vs. Western culture and gives a generalization of the Asian culture, which also comprises Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Malay etc. There are some similarities among other Asian cultures due to the social make-up and the influence to each other because of the proximity. But each of them has its own distinct characteristics.
As someone (a Chinese) who’s married to a Westerner, I cannot agree more with the clear observation presented in this Chinese culture vs. Western culture visulization.
According to my source, these icons were designed by Liu Young who was born in China and educated in Germany. See how much you agree with this.
Blue –> Westerner Red –> Asian/Chinese
