I know absolutely everyone is their own person, and this is a very broad overview of culture, but at the same time, I think this is a very, very important lesson that your values and lifestyle really are influenced by your environment and not by universal definitions. It'd be nice if more people took a look at this course, imo. :)

Very interesting course and unique topic. I enjoyed listening about the importance of developing cultural intelligence and its profound impact on our societies. The cultural features are well explained, and I enjoyed learning about how they can be recognized in the ways we act as individuals. However, the teacher seems to show a positive bias when explaining features associated with US culture, which is particularly sad to observe in a worldwide expert on the topic. Perhaps related to this, it is important to note that different cultural features are discussed with a focus on the economical aspects of it (doing business with different countries), and they might not necessarily reflect other aspects of customs and traditions of such countries. I decided to not continue the course at lecture 6, as the monologue over the professor's personal feelings during 9/11 felt quite unnecessary in a course about Customs of the World and Cultural Intelligence.
