The last difference in this paper is the difference in greeting of other people in the two cultures. In Mexican culture, you greet people by shaking their hands or giving a slight bow when introduced. Mexicans greet women differently than they greet men: when greeting a woman, Mexicans generally bow and only shake hands if the lady extends hers first.

According to Samir El Morocco, the more we know about the cultures of others, the more open-minded, tolerant and global we become. This phrase does make sense. Knowing the culture of other people can help us to understand their values, beliefs, attitude and behavior. Behaviors and attitude are changeable, values and beliefs aren’t. Culture has built those values and beliefs in us.

Individuality and cultures are two different things. First you have individuality, this is a single person and all of the things that they believe to be right and wrong. An individual gets to pick how to best live their lives, which we call prudence. We live in every day prudence by self-control; how we plan, and the things we decide to engage in. “This is also the morality, of what they believe is rightly owed to other” (justice). Individuals rightly own figuring out what one thinks, it narrows down to making it clear what they believe is rightly owed to them. Individuality also introduces the theory of Taste versus Value. In Taste, which address whether or not if an individual likes, dislikes, or may see that something is for them. For example, if there is a pair of red Tori Burch heels.
