Problem

Abuse of cultural values

Other Names:
Violation of key values of a culture
Unintentional cultural mistakes
Claim:
Frequently when foreigners violate key cultural values, they are not even aware of the violations, and no one brings the matter to their attention. Once you make a major cultural mistake, it is frequently impossible to rectify it. Sometimes a foreigner makes such a mistake and eventually leaves the country without even realizing or identifying what has been done.
