Mediation or the Traditional Divorce Litigation?
September 28, 2012
The journal “Psychological Science” reports that the cultural differences between Japanese and American cultures dictate how each deal with conflict—and by extension, wisdom. This study is undertaken by psychological scientist Igor Grossman of the University of Waterloo in Calanda alongside his colleagues.
Wisdom implies that one is good at resolving conflicts. Notably, “Americans are known to emphasise individuality and solve conflict in a direct manner. Conversely, the Japanese place a greater emphasis on social cohesion, and tend to settle conflict indirectly, relying on mediation through another person.”
