Online Publication Collapse Mark as Read RE: TRIGGERS David Smeed Email this Author 9/21/2014 3:47:29 PM There are many different categories of triggers: voice, appearance, attitude, and behavior (DeVry University, 2014). I find these triggers to be more like mini reactions or quick judgments based on the list provided above. I have found myself triggered at one time or another by each one of those categories above to feel and think a certain way. For example, when I sense the presence of body odor from another individual, my first reaction is to think that they are not clean, or they dont take pride in their personal appearance. In reality this belief that I hold is not held by all cultures, some cultures even embrace body odor due to it being “as distinctive as facial features” (DeVry University, 2014, para. 6). Another trigger is a person not showing up to a meeting on time. This behavior triggers a belief that this person doesn’t value the meeting or finds something else to be a better use of time. Again, not all cultures operate under this belief, which may result in other cultures being late for meetings (DeVry University, 2014). Overall, it is important to catch one self’s triggers, because such immediate reactions can result in discrimination and alienation of another culture, which destroys the valuable aspect of diversity.

Accents can be a voice trigger. It can lead us to believe that one is not knowledgeable or uneducated because he has a different tone or accent and is hard to understand. This is cultural discrimination and this reaction trigger should be avoided. Another trigger is a foreign family not looking the nurse or doctor in the eye. This could be preserved as disrespectful, but in their culture and country it is good manners not to look a professional directly in the eye (Shapiro, n.d.).

To me, the first thing that came into my mind is that "first impressions last". I always fix myself in the morning to make sure I look presentable to the patients, as I know that my appearance will have a lot of impact on how the patients react to me and foster their trust on what I will be doing and instructing them on every visit that I make to their homes. I make a conscious effort to make sure my accent is not so heavy and that I do look confident to
