  -> Thank you Tingting!

agree  Fang Sheng: I agree, though I wonder what this means exactly? And what's the opposite of it: stational culture?
3 mins
  -> My guess is that the 行为 here is related to that in 行为艺术。行为文化大概就是讲人们整体的行为特点,我想应该包括象是不是给女士开门,看电影吃不吃popcorn, 大街上会不会接吻之类的-- 仅是我的理解。欢迎更知道的人斧正 :-) // opposite-- 思想文化/ideological culture?

agree  Geof Aberhart: I think Shaunna's explanation sounds pretty good. My impression is that it just refers to ways in which certain groups will act in certain situations; kind of a more generalized organizational behavior.

  -> Thank you Geof Aberhart, for your insights. I think your point about more of a generalized organizational behavior is very helpful here.

agree  Jason Ma: I agree, just as 'behavioral arts'

agree  Jian Zhang: great dynamics here

  -> Thank you Jian!

agree  ats333: Shaunna is right. Culture mostly means "a way of life" and it includes many aspects of human behaviour or consequence of behaviour. As Fang Sheng mentioned, it's close to "behaviourial art" here but not as that artistic. It's "a way of behaviour".
