How Culture Drives Behaviours-Ted talk

Julien Bourrelle talks about how cultures behave differently and can therefore create misunderstandings. He argues that people walk around with cultural glasses. When we meet a person from another culture, we tend to forget that they are used to different norms. Misunderstandings can therefore quickly arise. Julien gave many examples during the lecture, one of the examples was a bus bench. We in Scandinavia do not tend to sit or stand close to others. We will therefore have an instinct to move if someone comes too close. This can lead people from other cultures to misunderstand and believe that we are moving because there is something wrong with them. Julian made the point that we should change our glasses and start seeing cultures from their side, he believes that this will lead to less misunderstanding.
