It gives you ten important tips on what not to do if you really want to win friends and make a good impression with your Chinese acquaintances. You may find yourself at a loss for words when you compliment a Chinese host on a wonderful meal, and you get in response, “No, no, the food was really horrible.” You hear the same thing when you tell a Chinese parent how smart or handsome his son is — he meets the compliment with a rebuff of “No, he’s really stupid” or “He’s not good looking at all.” These people aren’t being nasty . The worst thing you can possibly do to Chinese acquaintances is publicly humiliate or otherwise embarrass them. Don’t point out a mistake in front of others or yell at someone. Public displays of anger are frowned upon by the Chinese and are most uncomfortable for them to deal with — especially if the people getting angry are foreign tourists, for example.The time to pay the bill has come and everyone is simply doing what they’re expected to do — fight to be the one to pay it.The Chinese consider it good manners to vociferously and strenuously attempt to wrest the bill out of the very hands of whoever happens to have it.Joe Smith in Minnesota is known as Smith Joe (or the equivalent) in Shanghai. Unlike people in the West, the Chinese don’t feel very comfortable calling each other by their first names.If a man is introduced to you as Lî Míng, you can safely refer to him as Mr. Only family members and a few close friends ever refer to the man above, for example, as simply “Míng.” They may, however, add the prefix lâo (laow; old) or xiâo (shyaow; young) before the family name to show familiarity and closeness.Westerners are often surprised at the number of gifts the Chinese hosts give.
