If you’re living abroad you need to be sensitive to differences in local customs and traditions. For me, this means not only recognising the differences, but also accepting and adapting to them.
For example, in many western countries if you want to beckon someone over, you wave to them with an open hand held upright and pull the fingers towards you. In Thailand this act is aggressive (it says, “Do you want a fight?”). The correct action in Thailand is the hand pointing downwards and the fingers moving towards you (imagine squeezing a small mouse from above!)
In the middle east, approaches to dress codes, alcohol, or public displays of affection may be very different from what you are used to.
Are you able to recognise and adapt to these differences? (How do you know?)
