Every culture comes with its set of customs, what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. When simulating two different cultures in class today, I noticed how other cultures can get offended when they are not familiar with the other culture’s traditions and customs. I was a Heelot, and when visiting the Hokie’s they immediately tried to make eye contact with me and shake my hand. Eye contact and touching is forbidden in my culture so I had to look down and run quickly away while hissing. When the Hokies saw this, they became offended and perceived us as awkward, antisocial, and rude. This was not true; the behavior was just against our laws. Because they were not familiar with our customs, they perceived us differently because they lived in a different culture and region. People who live far away from each other develop different perceptions of how they view the world and people around them.
