7 Countries 7 Kinds Of Body Language
KNOWING BODY LANGUAGE AND THE MEANING OF GESTURES CAN BE AN ADVANTAGE WHEN TRAVELLING. HERE IS WHAT THIS SILENT LANGUAGE MEANS IN SEVEN DIFFERENT CULTURES.
In Thailand touching any part of another person’s body with your foot is considered disrespectful. If you do this by accident, you must apologize by softly touching your hand to the person’s arm and then touching your own head.
In China the head is considered the most valuable part of the body. So much so that even the pillow where you lay your head when you sleep should never be sat or stepped on.
In Morocco greetings are a form of conversation in their own right. During this ritual, which can last up to ten minutes with hand-shaking, kissing, embracing and asking after each other’s health, you will definitely make an impression on the other person.
A TIP: JAPANESE BATH ETIQUETTE
In Japanese baths, called onsen, always wash before entering the water, for according to Japanese tradition bath water once used is considered unsanitary. Not only must the bath itself be clean, the special garments to be worn while bathing must also be freshly laundered. Those who forget these traditional rules will be reminded by hand and arm gestures.
