The Glass is _________________.

"It's a given that culture powerfully influences thoughts, emotions and behaviors...We see things through a cultural lens that tints, magnifies, shrinks and otherwise shapes our perceptions." 

- Dean Barnlund from Communication in a Global Village

Arranging these glasses randomly on our guest's place-settings has created a few colorful conversations since Petra bought them a few years ago. 

Is it possible to generalize the mindset of a particular culture? If so, what glass would you put next to an American plate? A Croatian?
