It’s partly a cultural thing. See the book The Culture Map by Erin Meyer for more on that.

Hi John- I agree that context matters a great deal — if it’s an ongoing conversation, or something out of the blue. And I also agree with the cultural piece, which I detail as well in my book Global Dexterity (which came out the same year as the Culture Map!) http://amzn.to/2m7OCW7

Thanks for the comments!
