Greetings Across Pakistani:

Greetings Across Pakistani One thing that is different between Pakistani and US culture is that they do not use first names, unless you are closely related to them. One thing that is similar is that men typically shake each other’s hands when they first meet each other and that women hug and kiss one another. This is very similar to US culture as it is not a common task for men to hug and kiss one another once they meet each other initially.

Dining Etiquette:

Dining Etiquette When invited to someone’s home, it is important to remove shoes at the door. You must address the eldest person first. You can not start eating until the eldest person at the table has eaten. You only eat with the right hand Dining Etiquette in Pakistan is very different than from the US. We keep our shoes on and most times we do not eat as a family. We do not enforce eating a certain way it is more relaxed here in the US.

Business and Negotiations :

Business and Negotiations It is important to be on time for meetings, however they will keep you waiting. This is different from the US as we take being on time very seriously. It is important to maintain indirect eye contact. In the US, eye contact is a sign of confidence and honesty. It can take a numerous amount of visits before Pakastanis actually make a decision. They are very thorough and do not like to be pressured, they like win-win outcomes. In the US, we tend to make decisions under pressure and are more concerned about time.
