How Long Would It Take To Change The Culture? #894
There's been a bit of talk during these COVID-19 lockdowns about how long it takes to change a habit.
Most of what I've read suggests that after about 2 months, you'll find your new habits forming.
But how long would it take to change the culture?
Take the handshake or the kiss on the cheek. Neither are welcome in a post COVID-19 world.
In Thailand, the Wai gesture is used for greetings instead. No contact required.
Could that become part of the culture of greetings the West after 6 months? Or maybe a year?
Or would this level of cultural change be a generational thing?
What about the Pub culture?
If Pubs stay closed for a few more months OR the New Normal of social distancing changes the experience so much that it's just not appealing anymore, would the Pub culture that is so much a part of many countries, disappear?
