Asian Value System Vs Western Value System The world can be divided broadly in to two value systems- Asian value system and Western value system on the basis of values, beliefs, norms to which they adhere to. Asian value system is in contrast to the Western value system. The values held by the Asian people are totally different from the values held by the people in western societies. So, there are also some inconsistencies between the two dominant value systems i.e. Asian Values and Western Values that lead to a situation of conflict between the two value systems.
First, racism and tribalism are one of the factors that limit the idea of CQ which is present in the world. As previously highlighted, a person is believed to have a high cultural intelligence if they can interact with people from the diverse cultural background (Collins, Duyar, & Pearson, 2016). Nonetheless, racism limits the idea of exploring other communities since people develop negative attitudes towards the others. For instance, it is quite impossible to achieve cultural intelligence in the United States when the blacks discriminate the whites, and the whites believe that people of color are inferior (Nørmark, 2013). Moreover, immigration is yet another factor which limits the idea of people gaining high cultural intelligence.
However, the root cause is not from accepting that everyone can have their own culture, but that a common consensus is not reached between people of different cultures. Migrants might have different cultures, but they do not have the common understanding that they must abide by the same laws of the nation, and as a result problems arise. The existence of the problems thus leads to the mistaken belief that multiculturalism is failing. To examine if multiculturalism is a solution to cultural conflict, the reason for the conflict must first be defined, of which there are two. The first is that of intolerance, where individuals are unwilling to accept that others hold different beliefs and values.
●Psychological Barriers -This barriers affects the way an individual thinks about a service e.g. it may be they have a fear of the dentist .

Another is that the speaker may forget or lack the knowledge of the certain facts of what they are talking about. In this kind of situation, because the speaker has no other choice but to use vague language, it usually cause a negative effect on the content that the speaker tries to convey. Subjective condition refers to that the speaker attempts to hide some information or make the concept unclear
For EXAMPLE Assuming similarity rather than difference involves acting as you would around members of your own culture rather than being aware of the differences that lie between your culture and the culture of the person you are interacting with. This is detrimental to intercultural communication as when one does this, they are completely overlooking factors that could contribute towards a miscommunication. An EXAMPLE OF
Also the frequent repetation of words between words causes a linguistic chaos. The use of unfamiliar accents also results in this barrier as other individuals may not be able to the accents. The use of words which mean different things by the sender usually confuses the receiver. For example let us consider the word “value” being used in three different
This is because the central concern of Sen’s Capability Approach is his emphasis on the individual’s actual freedom. Some communitarians such as Gore would be in agreement with this statement. Sen’s account is somewhat lacking in shared values because of his over reliance on the individual. Gore argues that Sen’s Capability Approach only reflects how good or bad social arrangements are on the individual’s freedom and well-being (Gore 1997). Another criticism and in deed a shortcoming would be that Sen’s Capability Approach and especially Sen’s idea of individual freedom is rather vague and also fails to contemplate that individual freedom may have an impact on others.
One of the biggest dis-advantages of it is of the case selection and confirmation bias. Researchers choose the cases which they want to study and one which is of their interest. And secondly, the confirmation bias even has a very damaging effect which occurs because when both dependent and independent variables change as the case hypotheses want them to and any contradicting theory is being discarded. Another major dis-advantage of case studies is that is does not represent a wider population and that it lacks representativeness. Case studies usually examine why some events occurred and what were the mechanisms through which thy occurred.
