It's funny, I just read this piece of writing outlining the origins/history of the races on earth: https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-st ... aces-color
It's a bit cringy and probably the most racist thing I ever read, forthrightly referring to certain groups as "inferior", "backwards", "mongrels", "less progressive", "equally inferior", etc. I have no idea about how factual it is, but it's definitely interesting.
I'm Asian and I'm not very creative, risk-taking, or original. Asians seem to be more about power, money and status. They are also big on things like control, ownership, dominance and hierarchy. Most don't have principles and their mindset can be described as "might is right". There's a group mentality and mavericks are not encouraged. The intelligence is more like cunning, deviousness, and cleverness than creativity. I hate being part of such a culture.
On the positive side, a lot of Asians (who grew up in Asia) value loyalty and friendship. Asian-Americans and Westerners seem to be more individualistic.
I think, as a group, Asians tend to be least able in the area of emotional intelligence just as they are likely most able in terms of raw cognitive intelligence.
I'm certain that deeply rooted cultural patterns and practices are the chief reasons.
Creativity and novel thinking are unleashed when people can emotionally experience, express, and interpret for others. Asian peoples seemingly tend to suppress these impulses to some extent.
There are countless exceptions to this rule, Jack Ma being the most prominent and Winston Wu being among that subgroup as well. But if Asians manage to collectively bring their EQ up to par with their IQ, they would rule this world.
At present, they tend to do well in high brain power professions, but they only rarely rise to actually LEAD others in business, politics, the military, and academia in Western countries.
I'm convinced the cultural de-emphasis of EQ development is the reason. That might be changing as Asians become more and more westernized over time.
When I do classes about "what do you think about X" then often all the students will think the same way (e.g. should Harry marry Meghan).
My Chinese students ALWAYS become alert when I talk about money. The IT students really loved learning about salaries for programming related jobs.
But generally in China most of the culture here has been imported. The three most popular plushies here are Kumamon (Japan), LINE (Japan) and Pink Panther (USA).
