East Meets West: An Infographic Portrait

I suppose working in an entirely Chinese environment has given me the chance to really understand Chinese culture, and by consequence, my own as well. Like when a Chinese colleague affectionately grabs my arm and starts speaking 1 inch from my nose, I naturally start to move away because this crosses a cultural norm for me, as it would for many Westerners. It’s just “normal” to stand further away.
This is such an awesome portrayal of the cultural differences, really simplistic and on-point.
