Time: 3:30p - 4:30p

Place: UAB Humanities Building 105

The event is free and open to the public.

Yasuhiro Daiku is a Ph.D. student in the Graduate School of Human Sciences at Osaka University, Japan. He serves as a research fellow at Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and is a visiting scholar in the Department of Communication Studies at UAB. He studies Social Psychology, and investigates human behavior as a member of society. His research mainly focuses on lie /deception detection. 

Generally, it has been thought that Japan has more collectivist culture compared to America. Recently, however, some cultural psychologists counter the traditional views of Japanese collectivism vs. American individualism. Here, I will introduce arguments on both sides, and give the audience the opportunity to think twice about both cultures. Also, I will explain cognitive biases that humans have generally, which sometimes make us misunderstand cultures.
