What I Learned in School Today

Cultural Variation

from Hofstede, 1980.

Interesting, no?   Check out how all of the dark pink countries are English-speaking.  I think he probably didn’t study all of the “20-34” range countries, so it’s kind of weird that he’d leave those countries as white (unless the image is poor and they should actually be a pale yellow or something).  Anyway, I thought it was interesting.

It’s weird leaving work for two hours in the middle of the day, but I can see myself loving it.  What I can’t see myself loving are the couple of really dense undergrads in the class — don’t get me wrong, there are some extremely intelligent seeming people in the class, it’s just that a couple of the more vocal characters should maybe keep their mouths shut a little more…

Am I pretentious?  Maybe.  Sigh.

Compared to Fall quarter, this is a breath of fresh air.  I can totally handle it.  I didn’t come home wanting to drink or cry.  I’m happy the beginning of every quarter won’t be like that. Whew.

    Ha! So you’re still learning about maps :)… Glad to hear the quarter is starting out well, and I’m looking forward to hearing about what you learn

  2. It WAS a poor scan — the “20-34” range is supposed to be light blue, and light blue countries include Thailand, the Philippines, Portugal, Mexico, and Chile.

    Bad scans/projectors lead to misinformation!
