Really, its a cultural thing.

Its funny because i think it ties into how anime and manga are made, if you look at most of them they always have someone with immense talent, and then the main character is usually someone without immense talent. Take scryed for instance(i love that anime), its whole theme wasn't about talent but about how much effort you put into what you are doing.

I would actually say western countries have more talent, better genes, etc. They just have always lived in a system that tries to avoid comparing themselves to others, to keep that individualistic mentality.

Where asian countries(i'm chinese btw), actually embraces/supports comparing our selves, our family, etc to others. So we practice and practice things that are based on hard work, like maths, etc.

However, we lose alot of creative ingenuity because we don't have a history of valuing people who are creative or innovative. Out of the few inventions out of china (silk, printing blocks, compass, gunpowder) not many people know the names of the inventors. However look at America, which is decently young, has invented so many things and everyone knows the names of thomas edison, albert einstien, etc.

And the reason i would say Westerners actually have more talent is because the majority of people that are the best of the best, cooks, engineers, teachers, philosophers, scientists, are not from asia because we are not brought up to be pioneers.

And of course everything i said is a generalization, so take it with a grain of salt

Do I think Italian people are somehow connected to the Mafia? No.
Do I think Black people are lazy as hell and love chicken? No.
Do I think Mexican people will work as lawn mowers for their entire lives? No.
Do I think Asian people are smart?

Maybe.

Funny.

Anyways, Asians being smart is a stereotype. There are smart people from each race.
Posted 2/1/08 , edited 4/21/08
I don't befriend them but I know plenty of dumb Asians. I do admit however to Asians going into more technical fields than white folks, black folks, hispanic folks or what not. I majored in engineering and I can tell you that Asians were the majority where as white folks were the minority and any other race even more so.

Depends on genetic. Haha.
I see that all races are smart and intelligent.
But If you envy with smart people, you can put chips into your brain, and prepare to be a new robo-human.
I don't think smart people are good unless they are open-minded.
So dont worry. The environment sometimes affects.
You can be intelligent when you make friend with intelligentsia.
