– The text authors believe that despite all the ethnic, cultural, religious, racial, and national differences, people can learn to become more understanding, respectful, and tolerant of each other. In spite of the fact that cross-cultural psychology alone cannot solve the profound problems facing the human race, the authors purport that knowledge coupled with goodwill certainly can create a positive psychological climate that might eventually generate useful solutions (Shiraev & Levy, 2017).
In consideration of the above statement and this week’s reading assignments, discuss how cross-cultural psychology and critical thinking will serve to enhance your own academic, professional, and personal growth. Give examples from your own personal and/or professional life where this has been evident.
