comment The reality of answering いいえ to a negative question
One difference between Japanese and English is that Japanese people look for the correct way to do something, conformity is far more important. In many English speaking countries they don't like being told what to do thus the view is more often; how English is generally used is the closest to "correct". On the topic of logic, I would answer the question "Would you like tea or coffee?" with "Yes" if I would like tea or coffee (and I don't care which)
