A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Can’t we discuss this in private? I think on the whole Westerners are very private people. We place great emphasis on secrecy and confidentially. To break this, is often considered a taboo in our world. This is why, if we have something personal or business-like to discuss with someone, we always choose to do it in private, out of respect for both parties. I tend to feel uncomfortable if I have to discuss something private in a public domain. Recently, I wanted to discuss a business proposal with a businessman involving money, commissions and a cooperative, contractual, therefore confidential, agreement. The businessman was with another client, also Balinese, and they were discussing a retail opportunity. Rather than asking me to wait in another area (the place was like only four hectares after all…), he welcomed me to ‘join’ the conversation while he talked commissions on handicrafts and tourist bus arrivals. They both chatted frankly and openly about money negotiating with one another, as if half-expecting me to join in on something that I knew, nor cared, much about. After only 10 minutes or so it was my turn to ‘negotiate’ with the boss, with the other guy standing right there. The air of awkwardness eventually shied me away from discussing percentages with this guy and I ended up walking away confused and bewildered. I’ve also experienced this with Balinese friends or family when quite personal things, such as illness, menstruation or sexual matters are brought up in everyday conservation in a public arena. This could be due to the communal nature of traditional society, where in reality it’s near impossible to ‘find a quiet place’ to have a chat without anyone listening in. Most Balinese I’ve talked to about this regard having a formal private meeting with someone awkward and overly serious, preferring to talk in a more public, group situation. Understanding this—whilst bearing in mind that public humiliation is also taboo for the Balinese—is key to better understanding how to blend into both their business world and also their social arena.
