Inculcate

in·cul·cate
inˈkəlˌkāt
  1. instill or teach (an attitude, idea, or habit) by persistent instruction.

Culture shock seems to have worn off. Moving from a low context culture to a high context culture is so interesting. The difference in values are so subtle yet so fundamentally different. For example, back home parties started and ended; unless the party was designated to be all day, of course. Here, parties and plans even are rather free floating. I knew that much when moving here, it was part of the challenge for me. I was surprised by the value of who are your people, rather than what do you do. Back home, nobody asks where you’re from. They ask what you do.
