Lecture no. 9 from the course: Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are
Taught by Professor David Livermore | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

Consider how our environment shapes this value and can even create variations within a culture—as in differences between New Yorkers and Midwesterners.
