More than 250 million years ago, there was a single supercontinent called Pangaea. Continental drift is a theory claiming that Pangaea separated and drifted apart, creating many more continents. Today, these continents host a multitude of cultures, perspectives, climates, foods, languages, and economies. Curiosity of the unknown has motivated humans to travel and explore for centuries. But when traveling outside of your comfort zone, there can be a period of culture shock, and you can feel out of place. On the other hand, when a person from another culture is in your own country, you witness their different actions and customs. Are these out of place too? Either way poses a challenge. How can you stay open minded to let in new information, yet still feel grounded enough to maintain your comfort levels to take it all in? Behaviors differ. Societies are distinct. Cultures are unique. Cross-cultural psychology considers these differences, enabling you to become more accepting of other cultures and customs, and develop a better understanding of yourself.
