High-context Culture

February 20, 2020

High-context Culture discusses one facet of communication within various societies. High-context Cultures rely heavily on implicit communication defined by social relationships and through context. Verbal communication is secondary to nonverbal cues like gestural nuance, and facial expressions take precedence.

Cultures with high-context messaging like the Philippines employ subtle, indirect communication where face-to-face interaction is far more critical than low-context cultures that use direct, blunt verbal messaging.
