West Brain, East Brain by Sharon Begley FROM Newsweek

"[Among Chinese speakers] the "me" circuit hummed not only when they thought whether a particular adjective described themselves [as with English speakers], but also when they considered whether it described their mother."
MY  COMMENT
Despite the result above, I suspect as the fertility rate drops in Taiwan, children will increasingly be placing their parents in nursing homes, just as in the West. Perhaps there are many situations in which the "different" Eastern and Western ways of thinking will simply be overwhelmed by economic realities.
