Intermediate Examination Paper from the year 2010 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: A, University of Florida, course: Intercultural Communication, language: English, abstract: According to my 'linear-active', 'multi-active' and 'reactive' triangle chart, I am not a typical Chinese, since I have more multi-active characteristics and fewer in the other two. However, as what we can tell from the chart, Japan is a typical reactive country. So there are very few similarities but lots of differences between my personal horizon and Japanese horizon. First of all, Japanese are always good listeners. Usually, they pay full attention to what is being said during a conversation, while they don't speak a lot. Besides, they barely interrupt or ask questions until the end. Howbeit, although I rarely interrupt during other's talking, but sometimes I just cannot wait to present my opinion in case the topic of the conversation swift to another. Also, generally speaking, I am not the one who talks most of the time during a meeting, but neither the one who never talks.
