Hi,friends.How are you doing today?
In Tokyo,the governor has asked people to stay at home during this weekend 28 Mar and 29 Mar to prevent Corona virus from spreading.Stay safe and take care of yourself.
I will write about “The top 3 words to describe Japanese personality”from my point of view as a Japanese born and raised in Japan.
①POLITE(Sometimes too polite)
・Not talk to an staff if they look busy in restaurants
・Tell “thank you” with a hazard light flash even when you drive a car if other cars make way for you
・Bowing many times just for meeting clients
→When I was working for a trading company in Tokyo,I was in charge of importing food materials from around world.Every time I visit our clients(Japanese Oil manufactures),we had to read the client’s hearts and not to bother their feelings…So when we leave the company,bowing at least three time before closing an elevator in the building.
・Tend not to talk in public transportation such as in train or in bus.Of course not telephone.
・We Japanese tend to be shy to talk with new people
・Most Japanese are not good at making a speech in front of many audience
→From my pint of view,we Japanese were educated by our parents to be modest and humble that might affect this personality.I’m also one of them,but While working,I always pretend not to be shy and have confidence.
We Japanese takes its time management very seriously. The Japan Railway (JR) and other connecting subways and train systems are known for their strictly punctual schedules. As such,when there is a delay of even a minute, the whole system gets thrown off. Trains often issue late slips for passengers to take to their employers if their trains get delayed. After all, it leaves a very bad impression if you’re late to work. If you got late to the office in the morning,you can’t make the excuse that the train was late here in Japan.It’s under control.
Thank you for reading this article today.I’m really curious about the personality of your country.If you have time,leave a comment.Thanks
I will keep up the best work from now on.
