Very interesting article. Thank you very much.
A nice example to add this article: when I lived in Jordan (a polychronic culture)the owner of my local supermarket new that I was from The Netherlands and never assisted any other customers when he was assisting me with my groceries. This went, of course, completely against his own cultural habits but he knew that I would appreciate it when he only paid attention to me. The question I often asked myself was: Who's adjusting to who here?
