Cultural Influences on Asiatic Interactions

Culture is more than just meals, attire, dialect, traditions and practices, it’s also the way we interact and connect to one another. And the relationships we have with people shape our livelihoods and decide our properly being.

In Asian civilizations where a powerful sense of family norms, education and recognition are emphasized, familial assent for dating or union partners is often required. When these ideals collide with American autonomy, it can lead to disturbed relationships.

Despite the fact that they share common characteristics such as family beliefs, a commitment to education and respect for tradition, the distinctions between Asiatic Americans are vast. The class is comprised of people from approximately 52 different countries with diverse languages, cultures and traditions.

For example, those who are second- century Eastern Americans with roots in Korea, Japan or Vietnam are likely to have conflicting ideas about what it means to remain” Asiatic”. These differences may also play a role in how well they fare when facing racism and other forms of discrimination.

A study that investigated racial identity theory suggested that individuals who endorse Asian values and experience high levels of racism reported lower well- being than those who endorse Western values. While there are many reasons for this, it could be that those who strongly identify with their racial/ethnic group have the resources to draw upon cultural values and styles of coping in these difficult situations. For example, a person who believes in emotional restraint might have the internal resources to deal with racist incidents because they believe these actions will not negatively impact their racial/ethnic community.
