Asians are alpha in academics. It's unfortunate that they are beta in athletics, but, hey, you can't win em all

you got the wrong idea man, I don't mean you any disrespect. Just kind of how this thread goes, somebody posts their pic, everybody else makes smart ass comments. All love I assure you. You look like a cool guy. Peace, truce, etc. Any Jo-Ho (Josh Howard) fan is okay by me.

You don't have to have a one-hit overnight invention.

The people who are successful and dropout are generally those who are extremely creative. And that doesn't necessarily mean art. It can be business (mark cuban), fashion (tommy hilfiger), technology (bill gates) or anything.

School is essentially committing other people's ideas to memory. The people who have the ideas that others go to school to learn, don't need a resume or a transcript to prove anything to anyone. Their ideas and innovations are the ones driving the fabric of society.

It's the majority public who don't have ideas that have to be able to go to an employer and say "here, this is what i was able to learn."

An asian and a caucasion growing up in America will essentially be the same in terms of creativity and thought process, but not necessarily someone who grew up in China.

I don't know about other Asian languages but I know Chinese is an extremely simplistic, restrictive language. And language is one of the most direct factors in thought process. There's a reason why Chinese are essentially known for math. You can't write beautiful poetry in Chinese because they don't have near the superlatives or synonyms as in Romance languages. Their creativity is necessarily stifled by the language.

The idea that Chinese and other Asians are somewhat "robotic" in personality is no coincidence. And the fact that they are so enamored and fascinated with things like rap music and american celebrities and the like is not as well. Theirs is a very singularly focused culture. Traditionally there aren't nearly as many colors on the pallet so to speak. For them, not working a standard 9-5 isn't really a consideration, because there is no other forms of expression or production to consider (relative to American culture, of course). It's just not even something they'd think about.

So what AtomSmasher said is correct. In an Asian circle, not going the academic route is probably considered perilous and illogical. But that's simply their perception.
