Hi there, kindly read the instructions.

Self Reflection on Culture


This assignment requires you to

versus summarize. In order to succeed on this assignment it is important that you review and understand the difference between analyzing and summarizing. For more information on this distinction please see

Guide | Analyzing versus Summarizing


Think of a culture
different than your own that you will
likely have
frequent interaction within the career you choose during the next one to five years. Do not choose a culture that you would prefer to have interaction with. Rather, choose a culture that you will have interaction with.

In a
3-4 page double-spaced response with 1″ margins using size 12 font (times new roman or similar),
address each of the following questions:

STEP 1. Identify
three value dimensions of this culture that are different from your own culture.
Think about values and behaviors and business protocol. Explain.

Here are a few sources to help you learn more about the culture:

Go to
Hofstede Compare Countries to compare Hofstede’s value dimensions of different countries. Begin by selecting a country and then select a comparison country. Please keep in mind that Hofstede’s research is limited and is not intended to tell the whole story of any culture. We are more than our culture, and Hofstede would agree. The cultural patterns Hofstede identifies are meant to provide a very simple snap shot (a glimpse) of a culture. These snap shots are not a complete picture. There will always be exceptions. This research is shared to help you identify possible differences and think about ways to adjust and be flexible to people different than yourself.

Culture Crossing

There’s an explanation of the six cultural (value) dimensions on the Hofstede site:

After reading about them and identifying the culture you’d like to compare your own to, feel free to use the link provided on the assignment:

STEP 2. Identify
two biases you hold about this culture
. Be specific. Explain.

Please note, there is a difference between biases and opinions. Here is some explanation:


· A bias is the tendency to think in a certain way based on a person’s learned worldview.

· A bias is an inclination, slant or prejudice toward a certain group, thing, or topic.

· Bias is a judgement often uncorrelated with data. It tends to restrict the acknowledgement or the acceptance of different viewpoints and is not likely to change even if new information is presented.

· A bias can be an unconscious, cognitive process that we are often not aware of.

· Once we identify a bias we hold, we often are not eager to share it freely with others.


· Opinion is one’s interpretation of data or information. There could be alternative opinions about the same event based on different interpretations.

· An opinion is a viewpoint that can be neutral or biased.

· Opinions are something we are consciously aware of and often share freely with others.

· Unlike biases, opinions might easily change in light of new information.

Your task in this assignment is to identify biases


STEP 3. What are
three important ways in which you will become more flexible in order to promote intercultural competence with a person from this culture?
How will you go about monitoring your ethnocentrism with this culture? Explain. Be specific. Provide an example.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.

Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page.
