I was born and raised in Minnesota,the USA,but as an adult I have mostly lived in Europe and Africa.I teach cross-cultural management at the International Business School near Paris.For the last 15 years,I’ve studied how people in different parts of the world build trust,communicate,and make decisions especially in the workplace.

While traveling in Tokyo recently with Japanese colleague,I gave a short talk to a group of 20 managers.At the end,I asked whether there were any questions or comments.No hands went up,so I went to sit down.My colleague whispered to me,“I think there actually were some comments,Erin.Do you mind if I try?”I agreed,but I guessed it a waste of breath.He asked the group again,“Any comments or questions?”

Still,no one raised a hand,but this time he looked very carefully at each person in the silent audience.Gesturing to one of them,he said,“Do you have something to add?”To my amazement,she responded “Yes,thank you.”and asked me a very interesting question.My colleague repeated this several times,looking directly at the audience and asking for more questions or comments.

After the session,I asked my colleague,“how do you know that those people had questions?”He hesitated,not sure how to explain it,and then said,“It has to do with how bright their eyes are.”

He continued,“In Japan,we don’t make as much direct eye contact as you do in the West.So when you asked if there were any comments,most people were not looking directly at you.But a few people in the group were looking right at you,and their eyes were bright.That indicates that they would be happy to have you call on them.”

I thought to myself I would never have learned from my upbringing in Minnesota.Since then,I try to focus on understanding behavior in other cultures I encounter,and keep finding the bright eyes in the room.

A university in southwest China's Chongqing City set up a reading room as part of a campaign(活动)that stops students from taking their mobile phones with them in case the device distracts(使分心)them from concentrating on their studies.

Reportedly a student named Hu Xiaopeng participating in the campaign studied 530 minutes without using his mobile phone.Unlike Hu,another one picked up his mobile phone in less than 20 minutes.“Having seen many students use their mobile phones in the library,a habit that shortens their study time and negatively impacts their learning,we decided to open this reading room,”said Zhang Shuran,the person responsible for the project at the university.

Zhang added that students can keep their phones in appointed bags with numbers on them.The hags are placed on a desk near the door of the reading room."Staff members at the reading room will check the phones when there's a call,"said Zhang,adding that they will inform students when their parents or teachers call them,but will not tell students if an unknown person is calling or when there is a text message.Based on the time students hand in their phones when they come to the reading room and the time they get them back when they leave the room,Hu Xiaopeng from College of Animal Science and Technology of the university set a record of the longest time.Hu spent 530 minutes studying without using his phone.Though feeling somewhat surprised,Hu said,"It's bad to keep mobile phone with you when you are reading or studying."

The campaign has attracted nearly 200 students since it was launched a week ago.Some Internet users praised the campaign.One user named Liu Jingchang said,"It's good.I don’t bring my phone when going to the library in case I get distracted."
