First of all, that first statement is an overgeneralization. Not every Chinese person is going to be skilled at math of course. It’s ignorant to go into these stereotypes. 

But try this:

4,8,5,3,9,7,6.

Read them out loud to yourself. Now look away, and spend twenty seconds memorizing that sequence before saying them out loud again.

If you speak English, you have about a 50 percent chance of remembering that sequence perfectly If you’re Chinese, though, you’re almost certain to get it right every time. 

Why is this? 

One explanation is because the Chinese language allows them to read numbers faster. 

Chinese number words are remarkably brief. Most of them can be said in less than 1/4th of a second (for instance, 4 is ‘si’ and 7 ‘qi’)

Their English equivalents—”four,” “seven”—are longer: pronouncing them takes about 1/3 of a second. 

The English number system is also VERY illogical. 

For example, right after the word 10, instead of saying one-ten, two-ten, three-ten we have different words like 11,12. 

Not so in China, Japan and Korea. They have a logical counting system. Eleven is ten one. Twelve is ten two. Twenty-four is two ten four, and so on.

That difference means that Asian children learn to count much faster. Four year old Chinese children can count, on average, up to forty. American children, at that age, can only count to fifteen, and don’t reach forty until they’re 5 years old.

The regularity of their number systems also means that Asian children can perform basic functions—like addition—far more easily.

Ask an English seven-year-old to add thirty-seven plus twenty two, in her head, and she has to convert the words to numbers (37 + 22).

 Ask an Asian child to add three-tens-seven and two tens-two, and no translation is necessary.

Huh. That’s really interesting!

This makes so much more sense than the racist bullshit people come up with.

this applied to Thai language as well. 

You should listen how Asian children recite the times table.

A story about Kobe Bryant as told by a professional trainer who worked with Bryant this past Summer, for the Olympics:

It was about 3:30am. I lay in bed slowly fading away when I hear my cell ring. It was Kobe. I nervously picked up.

Hey uhh Rob I hope I’m not disturbing anything right now.

Uh no whats up kobe?

Just wondering if you could just help me out with some conditioning work thats all.

I checked my clock, 4:15am. yea sure ill see yo in the facility in a bit. It took me about 20 minutes to get my gear and out of the hotel.

When I arrived and opened the room to the main practice floor I saw Kobe. Alone.
He was drenched in sweat as if he had just taken a swim. It wasn’t even 5am.

Growing up, they don’t tell you how many hours of studying is required to get straight A’s or when applying for a job you aren’t told the amount of successful projects you have to complete to climb up to your ideal position.

When you hear about the most successful people in the world though, whether it’s in business, sports, or entertainment there is always 1 common factor amongst them all.

Day after day after day, they put in the Work.

This morning, think about what you want to accomplish today. Think about what you want from life.

Will you do whatever it takes including sacrificing free time now so that you can reap the reward later?
-
I know what it’s like to feel stuck, to fail, and to have people around you doubt your capabiliies. 
But, I will never know what it feels like to quit.

Today is yours for the taking, make it a day your future self will thank you for.” via @PhotoRepost_app #motivation #inspiration #qotd #instaquote #quoteoftheday #purpose #focused #fitmom #instafitness #shredz #kobe #lakerlover #lakers #goodmorning #morningmemo
