Why East Asians Are Disliked As Bosses, Colleagues and Businessmen

Have you noticed that east-asians are universally disliked as bosses, colleagues and businessmen? Ever wondered why?

The short answer is-

They are too greedy for their own good.

The long answer is a bit more complicated. So let me explain my theory about the reasons behind, and consequences of, this phenomena.

I believe that the uniquely dislikable profile of east-asians comes from a combination of characteristics, rather than one single behavior. They are feminine (greedy and short-sighted), aspergy (poor ability to empathize or innovate) and too inward looking as a group.

Each dysfunction feeds into another. Their greed and short-sightedness in combination with inward looking behavior make them dislikable and identifiable to an extent other groups have avoided. Compare them to Jews- for every stereotypical Jew you can always find another who is anything but that. For every covetous bankster type, you can find a scientist, doctor, artist, entrepreneur or free-thinking intellectual. In contrast, it is hard to find an atypical east-asian. Greed, short-sightedness and inward looking behavior in a group is far more obvious when there are few or non-existent counter examples.

A combination of greed, short-sightedness and aspergy behavior also creates other problems. How many of you want to interact with a greedy nerd who is trying to scam you- all the time. Sure greedy nerds can be very hard working- but do you want to work for them? with them? or do business with them?

East-asians are also strong believers/practitioners of a zero-sum world view and their aspergy behavior makes them unsympathetic to an extent that no other people. “chosen” or otherwise, have yet attained. It is also unfortunate that the second generation of asians in other countries are far more like their parents than other groups.

Aspergy and inward looking behavior also combine to produce the dysfunction of uninnovativeness. People who walk the same mental paths every day are not good at finding newer paths, even if they are experts at commuting down their traditional paths.

In summary, East-Asians will not be seen as anything other than greedy, uninnovative, deceptive, unfriendly and undesirable people tolerated merely for their ability as white-collar slaves.. UNLESS they stop being East-Asian. They certainly do not lack the intrinsic abilities to be everything they are currently not. Their real enemies are their own choice patterns, culture and egos.

The above also applies to Indians, though to a lesser extent- especially in the 2nd and 3rd generation.

    I’m only “aspergy”. At least the younger generation of East Asians in college campuses today are more social and “well-rounded” (non-STEM. Asians are vastly under-represented in the math department of my college).

    “greedy, innovative, deceptive, unfriendly and undesirable”

    Did you mean non-innovative? Might want to proofread there.

    Thanks. Was editing it on the iPhone.

    Aspergery, yes.

    Does it have to do with how they look?

    Uzbeks, Kazaks, Kirkizs, Uygurs, Tatars, Turkmens and Mongols have the same looks but seem to be very different.

    Clearly, each society has a characteristic set of traits that promoted survival.
    Humans are not unlike domesticated animals that come in many starkly different breeds.

    Areas that have been densely populated for thousands of years have encouraged hyper-specialization, a collectivist mindset, and a penchant for relentless zero sum competition.
    A tradition of such pressures on individuals leaves little room for innovation.
    Experimentation means a long series of failures that no one in such a society can afford.

    America is coming under many of the same sort of pressures that led to India or China. The clever rule followers, the learners by rote, the zero sum gamers, the collectivists are ascendant.

    Ants are not humans and humans are not ants, regardless of what Confucius says.

    One thing I noticed about my Indian friends in college — they were all, without exception, obsessed with status. It isn’t as if all the Indians I knew tried to make others around them miserable — quite the opposite, for most of them, believe it or not, are really chill, friendly people. But their obsessive efforts to obtain and retain status at any cost doesn’t leave much room for anything else, especially after they enter the workplace.

    This can be partly explained in terms of cultural inertia — I suspect it is an atavism of the caste system. And, of course, there is real poverty in India — the poor in India are not Amerifats — which is an added reminder of what failure can mean.

    But I also know a few Americanized, hipster stoner Indians, so this isn’t universal. But it takes at least a generation, if not two, for the old ways to die off.

      “But I also know a few Americanized, hipster stoner Indians, so this isn’t universal. But it takes at least a generation, if not two, for the old ways to die off.”

      So the old ways should die off so more Indians can become hipster-stoners?

    “But I also know a few Americanized, hipster stoner Indians”

    Hipsters of any ethnic background should be exiled. It’s especially sad for the older bunch of hipsters, to which Lenny Bruce described, “There is nothing sadder than an aging hipster.”

    That’s why the chinese are called the jews of the orient. They are not to be trusted, just like their namesakes.

    Is this answer constructive? No. How biased. You don’t know all the east-asians in the world or even a vast majority. I am not east asian, I’m south but this answer isn’t very helpful.

    This is absolute rubbish. Greed? Deceptive? Unfriendly? Oh yeah, and you must be from somewhere from paradise. Get real, look at yourself and take a better look at your own history and even present. It ain’t perfect and neither are you. Disgusting.

    I totally agree with you. You are amazing, you are the first person to find a logical and legit reason why so many eastern fucktards are fucktards!

    Same as yours, but stronger:

    Just being honest with all the same, I haven’t found a SINGLE eastasian who isn’t of the characteristics you described above
    Worse then slenderman!

    No offense please

    This blog is here to let you comment on your feelings and opinions, it’s free speech, not simple racism.

    I may be biased, but I DO have decency in my opinion; they may be exaggerated, but for the majority of asians, it’s true (slenderman face might only be my phobia)
