Ever wondered why we are so susceptible to cultural misunderstandings? Here is a nice little animated video that illustrates perfectly how these mishaps happen – even though our conscious mind would try to avoid them.
The clip was posted by the Living Institute from Denmark and, judging by the narrator’s accent, the company produced it themselves. But there I am, guilty as charged, making assumptions which could lead to a cultural gaffe… forgive me.
Keep an open mind, but not an empty head.
