Abstract : Part II of the Thai Culture Assimilator deals primarily with various interpersonal conflicts between Americans and Thais. Many of these conflicts were due to differences between the two cultures. The episodes contained in this volume illustrate various patterns of Thai interpersonal habits and relationships which are basically different from those of Americans, thus creating conflicts and misunderstandings between them. The first few episodes attempt to show that Thais, in general, do not distinguish between evaluation of their work and of themselves, Role (or Position) and the Individual who occupies that role, and Business acquaintances and Friends.
