Cultural Differences in Thinking

“Westerners are more likely to view themselves as individualistic, egocentric, and discrete from society, whereas Easterners are more inclined to view themselves as collectivistic, socio-centric, and related to others or society. This in turn might affect their thinking styles. … In contrast to analytic, focal, and linear thinking that is prevalent in the West, Easterners prefer to engage in more holistic, contextual, and intuitive thinking. This in turn affects one’s perception and behavior.”
