 晚了一步。。。。。。。。。

In one study, American and east Asian subjects were asked why the fish move 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 movement of the group fish. Next, we were asked to pay attention to the blue fish on the right, then to describe the reasons for the blue fish’s behavior. And Americans always talked about individual fish wanting to get away from the group, title the group, hate the group, when will us need the group. The rest Chinese and Japanese students are more likely to say the individual fish couldn’t get along with the group fish. The group fish kick out the individual fish and they just don’t like the individual fish. These cultural differences and how interpret behavior can lead starkly different version of the events. A factor Dr. Pang learned by tragic coincidence. One night, I get a phone call from friend who said “you turn on the TV”.

“As this graduate student walk into the department with 13 revolver and shot…..”

And suddenly, I saw a familiar face on the screen. I knew the guy, because he dated my wife’s roommate in China.

“Those shots killed rival students Liwa Shine…”

I talked to my wife about this and we thought that well if he married my wife’s roommate, then he probably won’t become such a, you know, a mess murder. We thought it’s too bad he didn’t get married.

Pang’s American friends and the press responded quite differently to the crime saying that Gang Lu was a tine bang and will kill the woman along with himself. But the Chinese papers had another point of view. Chinese media report was basically about how he had terrible relationship with other people, how he could not adjust to the American cultures and how easy to get a gun in the United States. Basically, if he were in China, he will not commit the crime.

If we had fundamental differences, how we can interpret other’s behavior? How to review our own behavior, our own sense of self? Research suggests that how we make sense of the world depends on large part and who do we think we are. What we think we’re supposed to be doing in this life as being engaged in our cultural social meanings and practices?
