Here are a few of the ‘standard’ models used to discuss what culture is with a brief explanation of each model. Most IC trainers have a favorite model or two that they prefer or will use often, but this is generally a way to only begin the discussion.
Just how complex is culture compared to what we usually think it is.
That is, what we can see, hear, taste, and smell versus that which flows under the surface, but is really the engine driving each and every one of our interactions.
You never know what pressures are affecting a person’s day; in addition to external factors, there could be internal cultural factors at play.
So, be kind to those you encounter.
