Test your cultural expertise with our weekly quiz question.
Last week we talked about how to address an Indian colleague. This was an interesting discussion and we’d still like to hear your comments if you have experienced how this works in practice. Here’s the answer:
Although he is junior to you, he is older and hence you should address him as Mr. Mehta to show him the respect due to his being older. You would also address an older, though junior, female colleague by her title and family name.
The next question is about Germany:
Which of the following German behaviors might be attributed to a national Weltverbesserungswahn:
A. A passion for recycling waste products.
B. The high number of Bioladen (natural food stores).
C. Both A and B
D. None of the above.
We’d love to hear your what you think in the comments, and don’t forget to check next week’s post for the answer.

Hi Sanda! Well, apparently C is the correct answer, as you said:
So I am interested to know why you say cynical 🙂 You don’t agree?
