abstract
The purpose of this study is to understand how Chinese international students are affected by face concerns and facework of their American colleagues. Chinese international students (N=22) completed a survey containing 12 statements about how they think (i.e., face concerns) and six scenarios regarding how they respond (i.e., facework/conflict styles) during interactions with their American colleagues. It was found that Chinese international students were more likely to display self-face concerns, but use compromising facework (i.e., conflict style) regardless of the American students’ face concerns and facework during interactions.
