Slide No Proximity (Proxemics) Proxemics, or personal space, refers to the space an individual maintains around him or herself. Culture is important… in the USA, people prefer the “personal” or “social” zone because it is an individualist culture. Asian cultures are more collectivist and people prefer the “intimate” zone.

Slide No Touch (Haptics) Touch is the physical act of placing a part of your body on someone else’s body. Culture is very important in touch… USA: handshake is common (even for strangers), hugs, cheek kisses for those of opposite gender or of family (usually). Islamic and Hindu: typically don’t touch with the left hand. Mannerly in India to break your bread only with your right hand. Islamic: cultures generally don’t approve of any touching between genders, but consider such touching between same-sex to be appropriate. Many Asians don’t touch the head (Head houses the soul and a touch puts it in jeopardy).
Slide No Chronemics Chronemics is the technical term for understanding how time is managed based on personality, education, and culture. There are four main focus points for chronemics: Governance (how you use time) Culture (how culture affects governance) Tools (transmitters and receivers) Resources (channels and noise)
