Cultural Differences (Spain-USA)

Kluckhohn and Strodtbeck, Hofstede, Trompenaars, and Schwartz have all developed frameworks to describe cultural differences. Drawing upon one or more of their dimensions, give some evidence in support of their assessments based on your personal experience and observations here. If you disagree with the categorizations made by Hofstede and Trompenaars (i.e., vis-à-vis Spanish culture), cite some evidence in support of your position. Have you noticed any differences in verbal and non-verbal communication here in Spain (versus USA)? Please share some examples.
