  10. 10. Practical examples of culture shock:• The marriage of Pharmacia AB, a respected drugs company that was weak in the United States, and Upjohn Co., a proud Midwestern firm that needed more international business and a new product line, looked good. Putting the merger into practice proved a lot harder.• In Paris, when out for a morning walk you say "Bonjour!" to everyone you pass and get a cheery "Bonjour!" in return. Do that in New York and people will scurry away from you lest they be shot or molested.• Eye contact for prolonged time is considered rude in Asia, while in the American corporate environment it is considered a precursor to a confident person.
  11. 11. Reverse Culture Shock:• Returning to ones home culture after growing accustomed to a new one can produce the same effects as described above. This results from the psychosomatic and psychological consequences of the readjustment process to the primary culture.• This phenomenon, the reactions that members of the re-entered culture exhibit toward the re- entrant, and the inevitability of the two are encapsulated in the saying "you cant go home again," first coined by Thomas Wolfe in his book of the same title.
