Cultural Differences in Cognition

If people from another country behave differently, such as how the Japanese are obsessed with politeness and etiquette, then those people must also think differently. Modest behavior must be linked with modest thoughts, and vice-versa. While polite people could have impolite thoughts, the contrast would create cognitive dissonance, and there's only so much our brains can handle.
