Learning! East Meets West by Yang Liu

Here's a cool, quick guide for the next time you need a super-swift reference to a cultural difference between the East and West.  Graphic designer Yang Liu has created pictograms summing up some basic differences and put them in a book.

Obviously this all is absorbed with a HUGE caveat that these are generalizations that are super-simplified and are not to be supplanted onto individual people.  Cultural differences are best understood when referring to patterns of behaviour in large groups, not smaller-scale understanding of actual people.
