The Shadow of Arrogance

One thought on “The Shadow of Arrogance”

  1. Great points. I also think that people from other countries are quick to think of Americans as “cocky” or “stuck up.” I’ve learned that our encouragement of challenging authority figures, professors, and other experts in academia is often considered rude by people from other countries (which I hadn’t thought much of until graduate school, when we discussed that with several of our international classmates). My s/o is not from the U.S. originally, and I’ve definitely learned that our debates are viewed very differently through his lens!
