The another Meaning of “FACE” in Chinese- “Mianzi”「臉」在中文中的另一個解釋——「面子」

The idea of shame, usually expressed as “face”could be loosely defined as the “status” or “self-respect”in Chines and by no means alien to foreigners. It is the worst thing for a Chinese to lose face. Never insults, embarrass shame, yell at ot otherwise demean a person. Since all this actions would risk putting a Chinese in situation that he might lose face. Nither try to prove someone wrong nor shout at him in public. In order to get a successful effect without letting a Chinese lose face,any criticism should be delivered privately, discreetly and tactfully, or else, just opposite to what you wish.

羞恥這個概念,通常被表達為「面子」。在中文中大致的含義是「地位」或者「自尊」,這和外國人的觀念並不相同。在中國,最糟糕的事莫過於失了面子。所以,千萬不要對一個人進行侮辱、羞辱或者對其大吼,讓其尷尬等。因為這樣會讓一個中國人感覺到失了面子。千萬不要證明某人錯了,或者在公開場合對其吼叫。為了能有效地傳達意見而不讓中國人丟了面子,任何的批評都應該私下傳遞,而且方式要巧妙而謹慎。否則,你將事與願違。
