It’s important to be aware of the various contact patterns when communicating with Asiatic folks. In high framework conversation, where non-verbal cues and situational information are prioritized over the spoken words, are practiced in many Asian cultures. This contrasts favorably with the low-context contact fashion of American culture, where rules are clearly stated and information is largely communicated verbally.

Indirect/implicit interaction is also a popular process in Asian traditions. This method of communication helps to prevent embarrassing or humiliating some. It’s a especially effective tactic in connections where hierarchy and the need to protect one’s encounter are crucial. Direct connection is be interpreted as “talking around the topic” and may result in miscommunications.

For example, when a person is asked for feedback and they do n’t like the answer, they may say “maybe” instead of giving a flat “no”. This is as a result of the need to keep our faces and act polite. In some Asian faiths, refusing to respond in a evident bad way can be seen as extremely disrespectful.

In contrast, several Asiatic cultures have a high value on family and community. Due to this, it is common for Asiatic individuals to prioritize the demands of their extended families over those of their intimate partners. If the spouse is no vulnerable to these differences, this may lead to tricky contacts. In one study, a deputy components analysis revealed that a communication style that used indirect/implicit communication and social responsiveness was correlated with a higher adherence to Asiatic cultural values and a lower adherence to European American values.
