Culture shock is the personal disorientation a person may feel when experiencing an unfamiliar way of life due to immigration or a visit to a new country, or to a move between social environments, also a simple travel to another type of life
Hi~ This is when two different ways of life style collide. One is just as startled as the next. Ex: I, being an American wear clothes over a good majority of my body and of course, make a fashion statement. People and tribes from other parts of the world, may not understand such nonsense and wear only clothes to cover vulnerable areas. They may pierce their ears for reasons I can't conceive. Making huge holes in their ears & have them dangle to their wastes is not something I would think as a fashion statement. In their tribe it means something of great importance. Certain cultures belong in certain places. One may get startled when it is taken out of it's context and dropped into another's lap. or ear. or eyebrow, or so on and so forth. Have a great day.
