I grew up in the United States, where I have observed that being decisive and having a strong opinion on issues are two very valued traits.
But is there any room for gray 🌫️?
Living and working in Japan exposed me to an environment where I found being decisive and strongly opinionated to be counterproductive. It appeared that in Japan, people tend to express themselves in a less rigid manner.
Do we always need to classify ourselves, and/or identify so strongly with just one side of an issue?
