• To communicate effectively with Filipinos one has to step back and look at how they develop perception Meanings are not in words but in people.
• The Westerner has to listen two or three times as hard to Filipinos in order to find out what they really mean.
• Filipinos prefer to use body language rather than words to express themselves Westerners look for meaning and understanding in what is said, the Filipino in what is not said
• The silences for Filipinos together with the pauses between silences are very meaningful, they do convey messages.
• One should have in mind the indirectness of the Filipino is contrast to his directness
• The Filipino is indirect because he wants to keep his interpersonal encounters pleasant and friendly, because that way the channels of communication will remain open
• The Westerner puts a premium on honesty and frankness and feels that communication has to be direct to be effective.
• For the Filipino, directness and frankness is rude and brutal.
• Among intimates the indirect way of communicating is in the form of teasing or biruan. A form of teasing is the Filipino's propensity to giving nicknames To the Westerner, some nicknames may appear unkind, especially if they are directed at the persons most obvious physical trait.
• In Filipino culture, curiosity about another individual's personal life precedes entry into any relationship with him So an officer must not be annoyed if, in trying to be friendly, a Filipino seaman asks him questions that seem to invade his privacy, like "How much is your salary?, "Why don't you have any children", or Where did you come from?" These are simply a form of greeting and may not be seriously answered. A simple "Oh, just around the corner" will do
• Privacy is not given as much importance among Filipinos as among Westerners.
