Confucian Heritage Cultures: Face

  • Dominant concept in interpreting and regulating social behavior

  • Must be maintained and enhanced

  • Each person in a social group is responsible for saving his/her own face and the face of others

  • The teacher, having a higher social standing, is expected to adhere to a higher standard of ethics and to maintain self- control

  • The teacher should not “argue” with the students and vice versa

  • The teacher should protect the face of the students, the other teachers, and the institution

“I lost a lot of face by being unable to answer the question. How could he do that to me? I really have no face now.” 1 7 ( C h a n , 2 0 0 5 )
