Since the Chinese strive for harmony and are group dependent, they usually rely on artifacts, haptics, chronemics, proxemics, facial and body expression, tone of voice and posture to tell them what someone feels. For instant, frowning while someone is speaking is interpreted as a sign of disagreement. Hence, most Chinese maintain an impassive expression when speaking. In China, it is consider to be disrespectful to stare into another person’s eyes.
Some people who have misunderstanding or culture shock created by non-verbal behavior. For instance, South American prefer has eye contact, touching or smiling (Davis).

In this research paper, I will cover the importance of being proficient on applying critical and creative thinking process. Moreover, I will provide assertive examples using Major General (MG) David Petraeus’s critical thinking and problem solving process experiences during the invasion of Mosul, Iraq.
