Third Culture Building, part deux
Listening among those of differing cultures moves from an intracultural stage(Culture One) to an interpersonal stage(Culture 2). It then enters an intercultural stage of relationship building and restructuring, and a rhetorical stage of internalizing any changes. Finally, it enters a new intracultural stage at a more global level. The rhetorical stage is one in which variant values are negotiated and adjusted among parties so as to render them mutually palatable. The restructured view of the world that follows global listening can be termed Culture Three.
When experiencing the world from one's own point of view, this may be described as an emic view. This is in contrast to the etic point of view, in which the world is experienced from the outside. Through global listening, one moves away from the emic view, to the etic, and finally, after having been immersed in the latter view for long enough, one develops a double-emic view, in which pieces of their own culture and of the culture of "the other" conjoin to produce a new reality.
