Lifestyle—Being versus Doing

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are

Lifestyle—Being versus Doing

Taught by Professor David Livermore | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

Return to the topic of how we relate to time, but shift your focus to contrasts between “being” and “doing” cultures and ways you can effectively relate to people whose orientation differs from yours. Consider how our environment shapes this value and can even create variations within a culture—as in differences between New Yorkers and Midwesterners.
