From the Paper:

"Characterizing any national or cultural approaches to negotiations is rather an intricate task although generalizations are often derived. However any generalizations are applicable or otherwise depending on a lot of contextual factors such as time, environment, circumstances, stakes, prior experiences in dealing between the parties, type of the problem, personal preferences, how interpersonal relationships work and temperament. Any sort of generalizations will be applicable to certain members of the group some of the time and therefore it is dependent on the changing situational needs. It is perhaps the reason why we defy simple categorizations and broad classifications. Concurrently it is essential to retreat and try to observe ourselves and others from an audience level so that the patterns and habits which are defined as standard in negotiation can be analyzed for what they stand for are culturally adhered and cultural defined common sense."
