How culturally aware are you?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Cross Cultural Quiz - Japan
    The results show you are 66% culturally aware.
    Not bad, but could improve

    Looks like I'm fine in Japan
  2. Keeping it topical, I had a crack at the Muslim one. I scored 80% which should be enough for me to keep my head firmly attached to my shoulders :D
    I'm a bit dubious about trying the Japanese one, doesnt their culture revolve around a slightly pervy obsession with school girls? :wink:
  3. Nah, just work like a dog, be polite to everyone (holdover from samurai killing anyone they liked), like outdated 70's music and you'll get at least 60%. The schoolgirl underwear sniffing is purely optional.
  4. 70% for dining...thankfully no sheeps' eyeballs.

    (apparently the sheeps' eyeballs story arises from a cultural misunderstanding in which the cultural practice was to use the eyeballs to decorate the food as an indication of the freshness of the meat, and they were not for consumption!)
  5. I did the iranian quiz and scored I will keep my head when we invade there
  6. Not done the quiz but I am in regular contact with the indian and chinese members of Gosports community
  7. That's pervy??

    P.S. I'm apparently a vulture for culture.
  8. 70% for the dining - i am officially culturally aware woohoo!
  9. 80% at one with my Muslim friends... (...phew)
  10. i got 70% on the arabs - so no problems there
  11. Got 90% on Islam, hmmm, I am a muslim, I am part Arab, Where did I go wrong?
