In this episode Joseph Shaules and Ishita Ray explore the “eternal tourist” phenomenon—people who resist cultural difference they experience abroad. Ishita talks about the resistance she encountered when moving to France from India. Joseph talks to Jack – who spent years in Tokyo but still doesn’t speak Japanese. Joseph shares his research into common patterns of resistance. Brain and mind science reminds us that resistance is natural—we all do it—and that we all have cognitive biases that can trigger resistance.
