"Different" is "Wrong"?
I like to be said that "You are different!", but hate to be said "You are wrong!". English speaker would say it's no surprise. But it came from a mystery of Japanese language that shows the reason why Japanese behave so.
While "Different" is "Chigau" in Japanese, "Wrong" is also "Chigau". Ofcourse, mostly they properly use it to mean properly, but sometimes they use to mean suggestively "something wrong".

I thought there is two reasons.
People tend not to insist on something he think so much.
As most of you know, Japanese people is poor at asserting theirselves, so that they don't say something negative in front of the person.

People tend to think the majority is the right way.
If many people do the same, people (especially young generation) would get to feel comfortable. Thus trend is always important to get together with the others. They seems always scared to be discriminated by being different.

People tend to be too polite and too formal.
They don't show their honest feeling because they respect the person too much. In the other word, they are afraid to harm somebody by their word.

This might be a bad example though, Beat Takeshi, known as Takeshi Kitano the most famous Japanese multitalented entertainer, previously said "It won't be scarely to pass the red signal if everyone go together." I think this sentence suggested Japanese not to think the truth, but to look the other to follow.

As many major Japanese banks are reconstucted last 15 years, the banks are operated without predicting the future. They just followed the others and end up to be burdened with bad debts. This is the Japanese style operation after the world war II.

I'm not meaning to accuse the Japanese style because I feel the young generation have already been recognized it as they see many miserable consequences by the ordinal operaton that have been destructed and reformed.

However I would like to say "quest the truth and act the best for the future", not to say the suggestive "Chigau" to have better human relationship.
