You just said that I inferred from your post that Chinese is inferior to English, then you go and say "there are far less options in being descriptive, explanatory, poetic etc. in Chinese."

If Chinese is more restrictive than English in poetry than humanity I suppose hasn't found that limit yet because the Chinese have been creating different forms of poetry for hundred of years, and continue to do so. Chinese is not less descriptive or explanatory or less poetic it just doesn't fit the same grammatical structures that Romantic languages fill, its like a square peg in a round hole.

Chinese poetry is not the main topic of discussion here.

What Atom Smasher was essentially saying is this: If you take 20 students from China and 20 students from America, the diversity in personality, perspective, values etc. is likely to be much greater among the American students. I was simply agreeing and offered up a causal factor for that effect.

Yea but I think the difference is overstated, plus the cause of that has to do with SO many different factors, based on the actions of a multitude of individuals and nations over the last 200 years and the economic and social repercussions they caused. If China and America switched roles the results would be similarly reversed. Language doesn't have much to do with it at all.
