Subgroup/Subculture Project Reference: The Toolkit for Cross-Cultural Collaboration has some information about communication styles of various cultural groups that live in the U.S., including African Americans, Native Americans, Anglo or European Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans. If appropriate, you can use some of this information for developing your presentations about a subgroup or subculture.

Based on districtly distinction of “insiders” and “outsiders,” we are in trouble. I am scared about chaos here in TW. Taiwan people cannot do anything calmly…..It seems that we’ll never have peaceful future whatever who is the president. By the way, should I go back to Taichung? It’s in great turmoil last night, till today, perhaps tomorrow……Will we have tomorrow???

1. In page 62,the author mentions hedging strategies and the author says that one of the characteristics of hedging strategies is to make many reference to the virutes and skills of the superior before giving criticism, are essential to fulfilling the job and, concurrently, to protecting the face of those who are criticized. But I am curious why this can protect the face of those who are criticized? Is the reason because peopel haveo some surperior reference and they have information to base on their criticism, they criticism is reliable? Besides, I am confused how to distinguish “criticize” and “gossip”, can you defind the two words to me?
2. In page 63, the author says that in business negotiations, any proposal-counterproposal style of negotiating is avoided. I don’t know the reason. Becasue I think peopel should discuss thier business directly and think of a best one, they have to offter their own proposal directly.
