What is the difference in lifestyle between eastern culture and western culture? We as westerner, are more independent thinking, more about career and being individualistic. We are more thinking based. Base this life as the only one we have. Eastern Culture is more feeling base. Act more as a family unit than individualistic. They are probably introverted more than us in the west. They have a belief that every you can get in life comes from within. Believe in reincarnation. Looking within to improve yourself. We westerners, look at materlistic things like cars, money, etc. Outwardly things that would make us happy. I looked at this link EASTERN versus WESTERN PHILOSOPHY: Differences and Similarities. Cultural Intelligence, World Cultures comparison by Anastasia Bibikova and Vadim Kotelnikov Lol maybe I should have been born in the east.
