Description
Intercultural communication: November 1  Culture and Conflict: Harry C. Triandis  Members of different cultures sample with diverse probabilities different kinds of information rom their  environment  We sample the information coming at us, from our own ethnocentrism and our own view. As Ruban had  talked about, from our flexibility and our own notions. When faced with a situation; we sample.  Some sample the content of cmn.  Some cultures give great weight to ascribed attributes of persons, such as ethnicity race religion and others  to achieve attributes, such as beliefs, attitudes or a record of achievements.  Suderman (143) “in some cultures status is achieved by means of a persons record of success….” Example: jan. 9 1991 8 days before the UN intervention. Two people from two different cultures and  countries had mis­communicated. Mr. Baker said the US will attack if Iraq does not leave Kuait. (Lots of oil  production in Kuait) But he said it calmly. He heard the words we will attack, Sadam hussain brother notice  he said it calmly. He reported that they US will not attack, they are calm, they are weak, they are only  talking. In collective cultures:  It is all in the context and how it is said and not in the words, it is a  relationship based, a look in the eye, a handshake. But in US we love contracts, word
