 At first when we were listing differences I couldn't help but think Paul's class was being unfair to Anne's. It felt like the things we were saying, as best we tried, put our class in a more positive light. But then I started wondering if that was just because I in fact viewed the culture of our class as preferable. Was I just imposing a bias I already had? After talking to several other people it seemed that I had done just that. Cultures have a tendency to think of themselves as superior when they encounter another culture. It was a very interesting experience to have firsthand.
