Fundamentally, the Japanese are weary of people who are good talkers, equating this habit and demonstrations of such ability with unprincipled, untrustworthy behaviour.

While we can say there is also a similar attitude towards overly talkative people in the West as well, here in Japan, the negative response to people who talk way too much has a much more deeply rooted culture connotation, and far more important in the overall scheme of things even up until this very day.

In Japanese as in other Asian cultures, the stomach has traditionally been considered the centre of one’s being or life, and in that sense this area of the body is fundamentally the equivalent of the mind or heart in a western context. In Japanese, the abdomen is the source of temper, courage, resolve, generosity, pride, and so on, as well as being the site of an instinctive or telepathic-like ability making it possible for some especially skilled people to read other peoples minds.

I wrote and blog post about this entitled “Japanese telepathy: i shin den shin”, you can read about it here.
