496. American Culture Values

I had been to America thrice from India. I noticed some unique culture values which Americans had.  I was motivated by their independent nature. Every human being respect other’s individuality.  They give way to others privacy and own space. In India, whoever we meet may try to interfere in all our personal matters and they also think that there is nothing wrong in that attitude, as they care for them.

Americans are very proud of being self-reliant, or being able to take care of themselves, and they tend to think others should be self-reliant as well. When someone reaches a goal, that is typically seen as the result of his or her own hard work.  The recommendation does not enter  into the official career.  The children leave home at early  age to look after themselves.

Elders in particular typically need more peace and quiet and may not want to be disturbed. Nobody can start to gossip with them.  This means they often tell you what they think and they will be assertive about what they want. Being assertive is generally seen as a good thing in America. They won’t talk something keeping in mind. They are more expressive.

Americans like to believe the idea that all people should have equal opportunities.  Men and women should be treated equally, and men are not viewed as better than women.   When greeting someone, Americans tend to say, “Hi” or, “Hello.”  Americans can be competitive and often work hard to achieve their goals. Competition often leads Americans to be very busy. Many Americans view competition is a good thing. They value time and efficiency very much.

Really, the above qualities captured my mind and I also wish to follow them.
