Determine cultural conflicts between Mexico and your home country

This is a great site to help determine possible cultural conflicts between your culture and Mexico.

It compares 4 dimensions of cultural differences; Power Distance, Individuality, UncertaintyAvoidance and Masculinity.

From the site: "Welcome to the Intercultural Business Communication tool. This simple online tool offers a great resource for people wanting to get some intercultural business communication tips when working with people from different cultures. All you do is choose your own country and another country and we produce a graph that shows the the major differences between the two cultures. You then get some insightful intercultural business communication tips for working in or with that culture."

Intercultural Business Communication Tool

It provides a comparison between the countries, and then provides tips in order to reduce or manage this cultural gap.

Very interesting.
