8. Saving face
Americans are not concerned so much with 'saving face' as Chinese are. It is very important in China but not so in the USA. I think most Americans value truth over 'saving face'.
Overall, my assessment and conclusion is this: I'm happy with my life here in China and will likely stay here for many years to come. The negatives I've observed are far overshadowed by the positives here. I lived in the USA for more than a half century. It is my homeland and that will never change. I love America. But I also love China. I love the Chinese people and the rich culture here.
As a whole, I've had a very positive experience here which continues nearly every day. Is it better than the USA? Well, it is different than the USA and I'm enjoying my very rich experience here.
