Time—Punctuality versus Relationships

Lecture no. 7 from the course: Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are

Time—Punctuality versus Relationships

Taught by Professor David Livermore | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

There is perhaps no cultural difference that people relate to more than the stewardship of time. Learn how researchers account for these variations, and see how a culture’s tendency to be “polychronic,” or have a long-term orientation, correlates with punctuality being a low priority. Conclude with practical suggestions for dealing with people who may not share your view of time.

I have harbored this curiosity for quite awhile and now, I finally have some insight and knowledge on the culture of time perception. I definitely fall into the Event/Polychronic/Collective/RelationshipFirst spectrum.

Just watched this lecture for the second time, and I think this is my official favorite. It's so practical, and begins with such a great hypo that it begs repeated listenings. Cultural views of time are relevant to everyone. Watch. This. Lecture.
