guanxi are such a big deal in China. If you assume honesty and competence in your dealings with randomly selected Chinese companies you get cheated, shorted or have a late delivery real fast. Once you negotiate a personal relationship where this is not the case you maintain it. Then, once that person leaves that company you revert to the assumption of dishonesty and incompetence unleee the company has an excellent reputation."The only generalisation about people living in some country you can make is the language they are likely to speak and sometimes the religion they believe but things like being honest, hard working, self sacrificing is rather far fetched and either naive (romanticising) or dishonest (advertising)."It hard to read through your liberal cant but I think you building a strawman here. I not saying every person in a given nation is the same I saying there exist statistically valid generalisations about different nations. While personal experience quickly swamps and renders irrelevant stereotypes generalisations in long term relationships in short term ones treating people as representatives of their group gives useful information. Not all Swiss Germans are more polite, formal and distant than German Germans but if you bet that way you usually win. And really, deliberately throwing away information makes you someone shutting themselves off from the truth. And really, that what matters because soon we will all be dead and the truth is all there really is.
What someone really thinks is "honne", but what they actually express is "tatemae". Hypocrisy means espousing a self serving double standard. Roughly the equivalent of writing a guide about fitting into American culture that is based on what someone saw in 1950s TV shows.

>If three American people are talking together, and a fourth one joins the conversation, he will gregariously interrupt the conversation to talk about himself. Why?In America, everything is about individualism. People are supposed to be different from each other. Everybody may not have a job, but people understand it as American Dream just one of the ways in which people dream of being more different by being successful. As a result, not everybody has money to live, but this is understood as a necessary sacrifice. American individualism means that people love guns and are okay with each other having guns. Often times this means that people will live apart from each other in the country in large mansions and in seeming happiness. People also live together in large interesting cities, like New York or San Francisco, but when they do so, they make a point to appear different from each other. Students quit school early to seek independent projects they call Workers within a company see each other as opposing cowboys. The American is independent, performance oriented, and mercenary at work. He tries to improve themselves every day and to move from company to company, just as the cowboy galloped across different terrains in their time.

You spot on, this practice of summarizing a "romantic Japan" that doesn really exist has a name: Nihonjinron. There a lot of complete bollocks to be found in Western literature that falls under this term (even though it started out as a Japanese thing). But it definitely because he been Americanized. For example his name is Kenji, but we called him Ken when he was in the US.
think you missed the point because you list physical appearance and other factors for which there exists statistical data proving it. There are statistics about corruption you can compare between Japan and China. What you can say is that Chinese are liars and Japanese are honourable."Just like all people, all cultures are exactly the same."It hard to read through your stream of sarcasm but I think you building a strawman there. I not saying everyone is the same, I saying everyone is different and you get nice people in every country just like you can meet utter arseholes anywhere. And really, that the bit that matters because their height or skin colour and other things you can get handy stats for are largely irrelevant.

I think you missed the point because you confusing certainty with probability. I not saying there are no short Swedes, I saying if you bet money on a random Swede being taller than a random Sicilian in the long run you make money. There are masses of anecdotes and stereotypes based on experience that you can use to make generalisations that are true on average. You can say all Chinese are liars and Japanese are honourable but if you work under those assumptions you will do better in each country, on average than with the opposite assumptions. This is the entire reason Huarache Utility Blue

Title should be "Love letter to Japan". Bit one sided. Honestly, I don travel much as a tourist but I a serial immigrant and romanticising countries has gotten old pretty fast. The only generalisation about people living in some country you can make is the language they are likely to speak and sometimes the religion they believe but things like being honest, hard working, self Huarache Ultra Black On Feet sacrificing is rather far fetched and either naive (romanticising) or dishonest (advertising).
Aye, making cultural generalisations is as absurd as saying Swedes are inclined to be taller than Siclians or that men are generally stronger than women. It almost as ridiculous as thinking that there a difference in how much trust you can put in the assurances of a Japanese and Chinese company in their home countries. Just like all people, all cultures are exactly the same.
