Homework

 

In one study, American and east Asian subjects were asked why the fish moved as they did.

 

American subjects pay more attention to the individual fish, individual's movements and individual's desires. And Asian subjects pay more attention to the blue fish.

 

Next they were asked to pay attention to the blue fish on the right, then to describe the reasons for the blue fish's behavior.

 

And Ameircans always talked about individual fish, why did it get away from the group? / group, hate the group, want it to be the leaders of the group. whereas Chinese and Japanese students were more likely to say the individual couldn't get along with blue fish, its blue fish kicked out the individual fish and they just don't like this individual fish.

 

These cultural differences in how we interpret behavior can lead to starkly different versions of events. A fact that Doctor Peng learned by tragic coincidence.

 

One night I got phone call from friend who said you'd turn on the TV, and suddenly I saw a familiar face on the screen. I knew the guy because he deeded my wife Slonley in China. I talked to my wife about this. Either we thought that well if he married my wife Slonley, then he probably won't become such a, you know, a mass murder. And we / too bad beginning get the /.

 

Peng's American friends and press responded quite differently to the crime, saying that / was a time bomb and would kill the woman along with himself. But the Chinese papers had another point of view.

Chinese media report was basically about how he had a terrible relationship with other people; how he couldn't adjust to the American cultures and how easy to get a gun in the Untied States. Basically if he were in China, he would not commit the crime.

 

If we have fundamental differences in how we interpret other's behavior, how do we view our own behavior, our own sense of self. Researchers suggest that how we make sense of the world depends a large part on who we think we are, what we think / doing in this life as being engaged with a culture-social meanings and pratices.
