The beliefs of a person include their opinions, faith, and knowledge regarding different ideas of the world. The Chinese culture has been greatly influenced by their beliefs in Ying and Yang, good and evil. Everything to the Chinese, including health and life, is a balance between good and evil. Their belief is that whatever food is eaten influences their life either for good or for bad. They are correct in the sense that what we eat does affect our body systems to maintain or destroy our health (Lee et al., 6999).

As far as I know, all of the topics on this page can actually be developed into term papers suitable for a college course on traditional Chinese society. The list was originally developed in order to provide students in my course with a broad enough list of topics that they wouldn't all try to use the same library resources simultaneously. Over the years many good papers have been developed from the list. (Actually, so have many bad ones, but never mind that.) It is offered here for the use of students needing inspiration as they start developing topics.
Some Chinese expect the health care provider to know what their problem is the minute they walk through the door. For this reason, they may be shocked when the provider asks a simple question about their problem. The nodding or smiling does not mean agreement or understanding, but an expression of appreciation for what the provider is doing for them (Andrews, 7558). The health care provider should be careful and considerate in asking questions and should also give clear responses to the patient&apos s questions (Barkauska et al., 7557).
Other aspects, such as family structure, largely untouched.&rdquo Changing Chinese society has not been across the board even in the revolutionary time of Mao.
It is difficult to explain the values of a culture without comparing it to another culture and most of these comparisons with the Chinese have been with Americans. The Chinese see themselves as friendly, hardworking, trustworthy and obedient. They are not as sports oriented and believe that sport activities are a waste of time and energy. However, we know that martial arts is a big type of sport in this culture but it is not as much for physical strength as it is for concentration and skill. This is the reason that the Chinese perform better academically than people in many other cultures (Lee, McCauley, & Draguns, 6999).
On the other hand if the information is spare and hard to find, such a restriction is impossible, and you may find yourself even having to broaden the topic. In a prologue to your paper, placed before the first paragraph, you may if you wish explain what sorts of bibliographic constraints you experienced and the changes you were able (or forced or delighted) to make in the original topic in view of the materials you found.
History of Chinese Art - History of Chinese Art reveals a rich and diverse artistic culture and several artistic genres where the Chinese are especially dominant.
Also, many studies have been conducted on small Chinese children. In one study, infants were more easily consoled and another study revealed that they were less irritable however, they also showed less motor activity. One of the reasons for low irritability could be that Chinese mothers spend more time in physical contact with their small children, which tends to soothe them better (Lee et al., 6999).
