Explain how your personal assumptions were challenged


Psychology Assignment: "Culture Shock"

Your textbook emphasized the importance of understanding multiculturalism in effective interviewing. We often take for granted our own assumptions, values, and ways of perceiving the world until we encounter people from another culture. Recall a time when you experienced "culture shock" by traveling to another part of the world or by interacting with someone from another culture and were surprised by some of your own assumptions. If you have not interacted with people from different cultures, think about a book or film in which you became aware of your own assumptions and discovered that they were not universal. If you are having trouble, consider renting the movies Slumdog Millionaire, The House of Sand and Fog, Mi Familia, or Double Happiness.

For this assignment:

1. Identify and explain an example of "culture shock" either from your own experience or from a movie or book.

2. Explain how your personal assumptions were challenged.

3. Discuss what you learned about your own beliefs and if your beliefs were changed in any way.

4. As appropriate, cite the online course, the textbook, and other credible, scholarly sources to substantiate the points you are making.

Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:

1. The answer should be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.

2. The response also include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student's name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.

3. Also Include a reference page. The Citations and references should follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.
