Further research demonstrating fundamental difference in perceptions based upon cultures is one study in which Japanese and US students were shown an animated underwater scene with one large fish swimming among smaller fishes and other aquatic life. When asked to describe the scene, Americans tended to report the large fish and ignored other small objects. On the other hand, Japanese people described about aspects of the background environment and relationships between animate and inanimate objects much more than Americans did. This showed the visual focuses of the two cultures are very different.
Consider this research, as well as insights Ben Bogart makes about what is culturally normal, as you answer the questions that follow.
