Sometimes the motion may be limited to lowering the head, such as in Indonesia. JLBC Cadets In many cultures, several degrees of the lowness of the bow are distinguished and regarded as appropriate for different circumstances.

JLBC Cadets Some bows are performed equally by two or more individuals while others are unequal - the individual bowed to either does not bow in return or performs a less low bow in response. JLBC Cadets A head nod may be regarded as the minimal form of projection.
