culture and reasoning

In yesterday’s lecture we spoke about the type of responses people give when first told “all bears in the north are white” then asked “what color are the bear in the North Pole (i forgot the real place they asked Nordic ..)?”. Westerners would answer “white” whereas Asian farmers answer “I don’t know haven’t been there” …

The Asian farmers response might actually be a better response in certain situations. That type of responce eliminates any room for error, resulting in this cultures answers to be correct and less people are misguided. Answering to questions with vaild responses can actually be better for others…

Oh and btw, all bears are actually black some just have white fur šŸ™‚
