French and American Perceptions of Arrogance in the Other: A comparison of French and American values and implicit norms Paperback by Natalie Lutz (Author) €25,00
We've heard it over and over as fingers point across the Atlantic: THEY are so arrogant! When the topic comes up in intercultural trainings, people from other countries usually laugh and say: Both French and Americans are arrogant! What's there to talk about? Beyond a fun but ultimately sterile debate over who is the most arrogant, perceptions of arrogance can be a window into the different ways we interpret behavior through the filter of our own cultural values and illustrative of how other cultures value humility.
