Q: Do the chinese encourage women foreigners to drink too?

I don't drink. A lot. Once in a while I'll have a glass of wine or a margarita or a very very cold beer. I haven't done shooters or anything hard in about 15 years. I don't enjoy getting drunk, and it doesn't take a lot for me to get drunk. Will I be offered drinks? Is it going to cause offense when I refuse? It's something I won't budge on.

The whole "this is a man's world" mentality that the Chinese have will allow you to say no to drinking whenever you want. Unless you make the mistake and hurt their pride by out drinking them one night. But normally, they will just be honored if you raise a single glass with them and then tell them you must switch to something else.

Just tell them you have health problems. That's the secret code word for "Piss off, I don't feel like getting blackout drunk"

If you go out with them dont down-in-one the first glass they will take it as a signal you can handle your drink and will keep trying to force you to have more...sip slowly and be polite tell them you cant drink much and stick to it, dont drink more or get a soft drink if you feel you had enough...

You will certainly have people try to get you drunk....but they know some people cant take the drink and if you show them you cant by only drinking a sip when they down a whole glass it tells them you wont drink more....

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
