In the early years of life we have leads growing up that help us to have impressions of some people even before we become acquainted with the individuals. Sad as it may be stereotyping can occur for certain groups. In addition differences that happen are often faint and can lead to uncomfortable situations. Culture is a way of life of a group of people beliefs values and symbols that are accepted generally without thinking about them and they are held and passed on down by initiation and communication from one generation to the next (Chaney & Martin 2011 p. 205). Taking ill of anothers cultural is valid but if you research another culture then you can equip yourself with the knowledge to not take ill when dealing with individuals who differ from the group you are accustom to. That would include business communication group communities and personally. What is your thoughts on this.
