Mind creates both. 49-92, 69 Campbell uses McGuire’s definition of similarity: „ Presumably the receiver, to the extent that he perceives the source to be like himself in diverse characteristics, assumes that they also share common needs and goals. Vielleicht nein, 4. ), “Cultural communication and intercultural contact”, Hillsdale 1990, Enninger, W. „What interactans do with non-talk across cultures“, in: Knapp, K. (1987), pp. Hence, for him the meeting was rather successful. When these two styles clash in a negotiation, Americans might get the impression that the interlocutor is not really interested in the own needs. Moreover, similarity is very important in France. Cultural Information - Communication Styles Question: What do I need to know about verbal and non-verbal communications? Hence, silence destroys continuity which is necessary in order to lend clarity to speech. The public will stop talking when the judge enters the court. They often trust non-verbal messages more than the spoken word as words can have several meanings. In other cultures, including African and some Asian countries, indirect communication is more prevalent. Due to different systems of pausing between turns, the Athabaskan would reply later than the English expects. 6.2 Differences in negotiation patterns between France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Members of collectivistic, high-context cultures prefer to use the indirect verbal style. /Hall, M. „Hidden Differences. He must be aware of his inferior part and proceed in an offensive but concealed way, what Mühlen calls the communicative pull-mode66, in order to allow the superior to start discussing the issue whenever the latter wants to. The direct-indirect style refers to the way of expressing the speaker’s true intention in terms of his needs, wants and desires. 3.3 Uncertainty avoidance (ed.) Negative assumptions can also include the whole opposite ethnic group. “Basic readings in Communication Theory”, New York 1979, Mühlen, A. Finally, strategic approaches are not the same. There is an interdependence between employer and employee. In conclusion we can say that negotiations in the above mentioned western cultures seem to proceed differently. This proceeding is consistent with the assumption made in the personal vs. contextual style chapter. Therefore it would be necessary for a foreign company to choose a negotiator who is familiar with the French culture in order to be successful. Mühlen, after he had explained in vain that such a meeting in corruption free Singapore would not make much sense, agreed and promised to arrange a protocol meeting to introduce himself as the new Trade Councillor. Categorical words, such as “absolutely” and “certainly”, are often employed as well as “no” in order to answer in the negative. (ed.) 27- 35, Wiemann, J. and Knapp, M. “Turn Taking in conversations in: Mortensen, C.D. Speech Class 101. Senior managers or executives lead these meetings with junior employees normally toei… age or rank ). 3.1 Individualism vs. Collectivism Therefore, examining and reflecting on how one’s culture impacted each area that contribute to interpersonal communication was essential to gain 5.2.1 Turn Taking and Transition Relevant Places 5 4 3 2 1 5 4 3 2 1 I am aware of my preferred communication style. Non-Verbal Communication. Try a slightly different approach – for example, use less “assertive” language with an indirect communicator. In the following we will take a closer look on the issue of turn-taking, i.e. Accordingly, we characterized Asian management style as being authoritarian in nature and having high power distance, and Western management style as being more Australia: Communication Styles Australia, Culture Tips/Etiquette Dec 20, 2016 No Comments. The big difference to German negotiation patterns is that the buyer had a significantly higher individual profit. “Communicating with the Arabs”. But in this case it is not due to differences in length of TRP's that this discussion took this uncomfortable turn, but rather to a strategic proceeding on the part of the director. Since your parenting style will also categorize your communication methods, you’ll be able to stand back and assess your situation. These dimensions refer to how and to which extent language is used in verbal exchange in order to persuade the interlocutor. Relies on the listener knowing related events through close association with the speaker or culture. Mühlen made artificial pauses and hoped that the director would take over the burden of speaking. 3.4 Power distance, 4 Verbal Communication Styles by Gudykunst and Ting-Toomey He answered ‘yes’. It can be difficult for someone unaccustomed to a particular style of communication to ‘guess at’ the underlying meaning of indirect communication, and this may create a block to meaningful communication. We will then turn to a categorisation of cultures in the ‘cultural variability’ chapter in order to reveal different cultural assumptions about their values and worldviews which are also reflected in their specific way of communicating. As we can see, formality is essential in human relations for the Japanese which is in sharp contrast to the North Americans. He started to talk positively about Singapore and its economy. Furthermore, they are more likely to show emotional feelings, aggressive behaviour is accepted when a conflict or competition occurs, and there is a strong tendency for consensus. Subordinates expect to be consulted during the decision-making process. People in collectivistic societies “live in societies in which the interest of the group prevails over the interest of the individual.”9 People see themselves as a part of a specific group. with people having the same cultural background, without great disturbances. In the last chapter we investigated differences in negotiation behaviours. “Die Japaner sind direkt ihrer Gruppe loyal. (ed. 105, 39 Gudykunst, W.B., Ting-Toomey, S., Nishida, T. As we can see, the role of the negotiator is important in France and the U.K.. Could you check it over another time before finalizing it?”. At this time, however, it had been already decided that an English enterprise was preferred and the director knew why Mühlen had made the appointment. Go back, check your data and proofread your work. Strategies in proceeding vary and aspects like role or similarity are valued differently. Churches, libraries and cemeteries are just a few examples where people keep silent for the purpose of maintaining norms and popular belief. Moreover French buyers mostly achieve a higher individual profit than the sellers which shows that the role of the negotiator (seller or buyer) seems to influence the outcome. The Dutch may look to you to ‘break the ice’. Silence, or ma, is a very important aspect in high-context and high uncertainty avoidance cultures. Furthermore it was shown that the length of pauses between the change of speakers differ between cultures. Therefore the knowledge of at least one foreign language is definitely a crucial skill one should have. acting defensively and openly, is rather unlikely in collectivistic cultures, since 'no' as an answer is avoided. These cultures can handle new situations confrontatively without verbal elaborations or understatements, due to the values of honesty and openness. The Japanese for instance have developed haragei, or the ‘art of the belly’, for the meeting of minds without clear verbal interaction. For example, f eelings of annoyance Indirect speakers will not make a direct statement or directly answer a question that might cause tension or result in an uncomfortable situation. The director, in contrast, finds himself in the role of the superior since he is the person who is asked. During this meeting, a kind of power play took place. "Power distance is the extent to which less powerful members of institutions and organizations within a country expect and accept that power is distributed unequally."26. Both sides are supposed to use their “intuitive sense52 ” For Koreans, this intuitive sense is reflected in the concept of ‘nunchi’. The first example below shows the type of communication that will not work with someone who has a direct communication style. Students for example become quiet as soon as the teacher enters the room. "12 One’s identity derives from of the group and one would never think of breaking the loyalty towards the group. The hierarchical system can always change depending on the circumstances. Bruneau stated that "Silence is to speech as the white of this paper is to this print. Indirect communicators believe that being polite is more important than giving a true response; this belief is related to the concept of ‘saving face’ – to avoid hurting another person’s self-esteem. Becoming silent in such situations means a recognition and acknowledgement of the authoritative position. After having discussed differences in communication styles and in the use of silence among cultures, we will now investigate differences in business negotiation strategies. Even if the listener is not ready to accept his counterpart’s opinion and maybe contradicts, the speaker will go on talking in order to achieve a change in the listener’s attitude. The inferior therefore must make concessions. Assertiveness is a style of communication which many people struggle to put into practice, often because of confusion around exactly what it means. Non-verbal communication . The Chinese people prefer not to be touched, but it is accepted in public places when not avoidable. (...) All I could do was to give modest cue to make him talk about the subject if ever he wished to. Without this hold-accept procedure, longer pauses are rather possible in unfocused interactions where “participants are not so much concerned with filling the time by a continuous flow of turns, but the management of sheer and mere copresence., as for example retired neighbours sharing a park bench.”61. ACROSS CULTURE COMMUNICATION STYLE CHOICES IN WESTERN AND BRITISH CULTURE IN THE LEAP YEAR MOVIE. It says that neither more nor less information is required to communicate a message. We learned that Asian, in contrast to members of western cultures, are rather interested in long term relationships. It says that “human beings will adapt and aggregate themselves to the environment rather than change and exploit it, as the speaker attempts to adjust himself or herself to the feelings of his or her listeners. When these two verbal stylistic variations clash in a conversation, a communicative breakdown may occur and, furthermore, the differences are considered to be an important factor, which complicates the relationship between North America and Egypt.38 The exacting style is similar to Grice’s concept of the ‘quantity maxim’, which says that “(...) individuals should not give others more or less information than necessary.”39. High context cultures have widely shared socio-cultural assumptions and therefore they do not have to verbalise as much as low-context cultures. acting on the offensive but in concealed manner. The English speaker will now most likely interrupt him because he thinks that the Athabaskan has finished due to the length of the pause. (1979), p. 307, 57 Wiemann, J., Knapp, M. in: Mortensen (1979), pp. The longer or the more complex the periods of speech are, the longer is the hesitation. (1998), p. 27, 8 Gudykunst, W.B., Ting-Toomey, S, (1988), p. 40, 11 Gudykunst, W.B., Ting-Toomey, S. (1988), p. 42, 12 Oshio, T. in: Otte, W. Ihre Loyalität, die eigentlich ihrer Familie gelten sollte, dehnen sie auf ihre Firmen aus. They are taught to stand on their own two feet and one is never “supposed to be dependent on a group.”18, The identity is taken from the personal ‘I’ which differs from other people’s ‘I’. 30, 28 Gudykunst, W.B., Ting-Toomey, S., Nishida, T. (1990), pp. So it is possible to interact with the environment, i.e. Germans are maybe not even interested in searching for similarities, because “German[s] will keep [their] distance. As the director did not, Mühlen continued to speak. It combines both language and nonverbal cues and is the meta-message that dictates how listeners receive and interpret verbal messages. He started with small-talk and praised Singapore's economical development during the last 25 years. To convey the meaning that he [or she] is actually full, the guest must keep repeating ‘No’ several times, coupling it with an oath such as ‘By God’ or ‘I swear to God’.”37. Based on these results we will analyse a business negotiation between a Singaporean and a German businessman as well as between negotiators of western cultures, and reveal at the same time differences in proceeding in such a situation. 226-245, 1 Slembek, E. in: Jonach, I. They go so far as to enjoy argument and heated discussion as a sort of an intellectual game.”48 This kind of arguing is based on the ‘erabi’ or ‘selective’ worldview. [They] feel a personal relationship might interfere with the performance of [their] job.”70. Of course members of the same culture do not all and always (re)act in the same way and (re)actions are not entirely predictable due to individual personalities. Differences of age, status and sex are no reasons to use different language styles. North Americans for example prefer a first-name basis and direct address. But it is always used after a negative question, to which a German speaker would reply with ‘nein’ or ‘doch’. In order to find a final definition of ‘culture’ which will be used in this paper, I will quote Hofstedes concept of ‘culture two’: “It is the collective programming of the mind which distinguishes the members of one group or category of people from another.”6, The concept of ‘culture two’ differs from the concept of ‘culture one’. I went on and asked, if he could explain the way. And, vice- versa, Germans or British could think that the negotiation becomes too detailed and thus, too long. Even more ambiguous is the word ‚maybe‘. Members of individualistic, low-context cultures tend to use the direct style, which corresponds best to the value orientations (honesty, openness, individual worth) of such cultures. It is also likely that they do not even discuss the subject matter. being in the role of the seller or buyer does not significantly influence one’s profit. Direct communicators take the other speaker’s words at face value: they will not analyze the message for underlying meaning. Silence as a major source of rhetorical control takes place mostly in ceremonial public events, like flag rising, praying or testimony. that high-context communication is used in collectivistic cultures, whereas members of individualistic cultures use low-context communication. In conclusion we can say that intercultural communication contains several aspects that could lead to misunderstandings. Generally, the best practice is to be introduced by a third party. What must be said, will be said. Different aspects that influence negotiation outcomes among western cultures were investigated in the last part and it was shown that assumptions about ‘similarity’ or strategic approaches vary between Germans, British, French and North Americans. Polite nods are common when greeting someone but due to the restrained style, the gestures are not as frequent. 3 Cultural Variability - High royalties for the sales This can be seen as indirect communication as the director expected Mühlen to read the newspaper and, on this way, being aware of the situation. In order to clarify the term ‘culture’, we will begin with finding an appropriate definition. (...) The entire system of spoken language would fail without man's ability to both tolerate and create sign sequences of silence-sound-silence units. So my mistake was to take the ‘yes’ as a German ‘yes’ which led to the misunderstanding. The contextual style is heavily based on a hierarchical social order and is a rather role-centred language. The ‘individualism - collectivism dimension’ is the “major dimension of cultural variability(...)8 ”. „Aspects of relationship, strategy, and tactics in international negotiating: two examples from Singapore“ in: Pürschel, H. (1994), pp. Be mindful that your own non-verbal communication will be observed and interpreted. The meeting described above also reveals another pattern in Asian negotiation strategies. The role is in the U.K. seems to be even more important than in France. Prospect Heights 1982, Basso, K. „To give up on words: Silence in Western Apache cultures”, in: Carbough, D. (1990), Bruneau,T.J. This is in order to keep up group-harmony and self-face concern. 4.4 Instrumental vs. Affective style, 5 Silence The difference of the direct and indirect style can provoke a communicative breakdown between the interlocutors. Psycholinguistic silence does not contain a potential source of misunderstanding in an intercultural conversation as it only describes cognitive processes. A communication style is the way in which we use language to share information with others. The exacting style can be found in low-context cultures which are low to moderate on Hofstede’s uncertainty avoidance dimension. American businessmen have to publish their results in quarterly reports and Germans think in terms of fiscal years. If you grew up in a western-style education, you were taught to put the answer first. Arbeitskreis für interkulturelle Kommunilation, Band 5: „Interkulturelle Kommunikation und Neuorientireung von Mensch und Gesellschaft“, Unkel 1985, Prosser, M. „The Cultural Dialogue“, Boston 1978, Pürschel, H. People often confuse assertiveness with aggression, because it involves sticking up for yourself. Similarity did not influence the outcome. In contrast to the Old Order Amish, North American speakers would hardly accept a pause longer than six seconds. However, the second request may require interpretation. (...) Dr. Y (the director) seemed not only not to notice my subtle reminders, but for almost half an hour said nothing at all. These conceptions often include the use of silence for different purposes. The director rejected Mühlens' request indirectly by not moving at all, i.e. Recognize how your style may affect others, and become more flexible in how you approach people with a different style. Hofstede’s dimension of uncertainty avoidance describes “the extent to which the members of a culture feel threatened by uncertain or unknown situations23.” He distinguishes low and high uncertainty avoidance. This communication style can come across as ambiguous. “Style” refers to an organization's guidelines for consistency in how words, phrases, typographical elements, etc., are to be used—or not used. Touching. When he asked for a meeting he did not mention the real intention of his visit because he knew that under such circumstances he would be rejected. In times of globalisation, the global village and the Internet, the aspect of intercultural communication becomes more and more important. Studies in International Communication. Bestimmt nicht”.32 The problem is how to interpret the term in the right way. Assumptions on values and a “set of deep-rooted historical-political logics” are decisive elements for the choice of one of these two dimensions.35. It must be chosen because a simple statement could mean the opposite. Centralisation is the norm and the salary range is wide. from close relatives, neighbourhood, friends, school etc. To Western listeners using mainly the exacting style, the elaborate style may sound exaggerated or even extreme, radical and aggressive. Physiologically, silence appears to be the mirror image of the shape of discernible sound for each person. As we have already mentioned in the cultural variability chapter, cultures have different assumptions about values. It can moreover lead to negative assumptions by the interlocutors. 21-41, Oshio, T „Lebensauffassungen in Deutschland und Japan“, in: Otte, W. (1985), pp. During a conversation of two or more interactans, the question when one has finished expressing his intention and is ready to give the burden of speech to the interlocutor, is very important as a smooth, synchronised manner of turn taking reduces the risk of an uncomfortable interruption in conversation.57 In discussions between two politicians of opposite parties for example, it happens quite often that one speaker is interrupted by his or her interlocutor. 149-159, Otte, W. Once one has learned how the system works, (s)he is likely to be able “to control one’s environment, at least to a partial extent”5. - It only takes five minutes 5 4 3 2 1 5 4 3 2 1 I understand how my behavior and chosen communication style(s) may impact my interactions with others. Australia is a multicultural, amicable society, so it is important to be sensitive to different cultures and lifestyles when interacting with locals who may come from a wide range of traditions. In contrast, the low-context communication is one “in which the mass of the information is vested in the explicit code”21. Indirect communication happens when a speaker’s true intentions are hidden. But throughout our socialisation process we learn patterns of thinking, feeling and potential acting from our environment, i.e. Most westerners will speak openly with honesty and are always to the point. The speaker tries to persuade his or her listener in a confrontational setting with arguments in the step-by-step process viewing himself or herself as “an agent of change”47. Presenting bad news is avoided to the extent that “in some instances in which a close family member dies, the communication of this information may be postponed for months and even years.”34, In conclusion, we can summarise that the use of direct speech in individualistic, lowcontext cultures, asserts self-face need and self-face concern whereas in collectivistic, high-context cultures, the indirect speech is preferred in order to keep up group harmony and to preserve mutual-face need. Ich habe es zur Kenntnis genommen und ‘ja’ im westlichen Sinne.”31. Psycholinguistic and socio-cultural silence completed the three dimensions of silence set by Bruneau. the MRT project, and the brake business. A German brake-factory asked Mühlen to convince the director of the Singaporean underground metrorail system to order the brakes in Germany. Thus, one has to get away from the ethnocentric view in order to investigate differences in speech and to be able to recognise the true intention of the interlocutor. (ed.) Pauses can be filled with utterances such as 'ah', 'um', repetitions, sentence corrections, word changes etc. But, as we have already said, the director remained silent for about half an hour. People have the possibility to travel across continents, students are highly recommended to pass an internship in a foreign country and bigger enterprises will hardly survive without introducing their products in foreign markets or merging with foreign companies in order to establish a multinational company. Therefore they tend to probe their interlocutor in the first meetings whether the counterpart is worthy of a relationship. Both, encoder and decoder of speech need to gain time to either encode mental thoughts into proper words and grammatical forms, or to decode a message. Japanese leaders are actually supposed to perform haragei rather than having verbal abilities.41. With indirect communication, there is more risk of misunderstanding, but less risk of offending the receiver. Saying ‘no’ would disturb the positive atmosphere.30. That means that there is lifelong loyalty and goals of the ‘in-group’ are more important than personal goals. People who accept everything and hardly contradict, can be easily labelled in Germany as a ‘Ja-Sager’, which has a very negative connotation. This is just one example to show how easily misunderstandings can occur, when interlocutors with direct and indirect style communicate. Suddenly he seemed to become a little bit nervous which he expressed with an (for my eyes) exaggerated smile and I soon noticed that he did not know the right way. In contrast, similarity did not affect the negotiation’s outcome significantly in a German negotiation.
