58年的生命长河中,我在好几个国家长大,在国际上工作的时间也超过了35年,根据我的经验得出的结论:大多数中国人,似乎有着一种与生俱来的能力:当交易还在进行的时候,他们就能在头脑中算出每一笔交易的可能和结果。如果这不让人惊讶,哪还有什么是呢?


In my 58 years of living, plus growing up in several countries and working internationally for 35+ years, this quality comes through:—

58年的生命长河中,我在好几个国家长大,在国际上工作的时间也超过了35年,根据我的经验得出的结论:

Most Chinese people seem to have an almost innate ability to work out the probable financial scenario and consequences of any transaction — in their heads while the transaction is still in the birthing stages.

If that doesn’t surprise, I don’t know what will.

大多数中国人,似乎有着一种与生俱来的能力:当交易还在进行的时候,他们就能在头脑中算出每一笔交易的可能和结果。

如果这不让人惊讶,哪还有什么是呢?

Other than that, most Chinese men can cook — I mean actual cooking of actual culinary dishes, not just boiling some sop just to fill the stomach. Ain’t that a surprise to hungry mouths, eh?

除此之外,大多数的中国男人都会做饭,不是随便煮点面包片填饱肚子那种,而是真的能在厨房里烧菜的那种。对于饥肠辘辘的人来说,这难道不让人惊讶吗?

They’re actually not short.

I had a conference in Singapore recently, and stayed for a bit of R&R afterwards. Singapore is about 80% ethnically Chinese.

他们实际上并不矮啊。

最近我在新加坡参加了一个会议,之后留下来做一些修养和放松。新加坡人口中,大约80%是华人。

Now, I’m 6′0″, and I was expecting to stick out like a giant’s sore thumb. Nope. I’d say that the shortest people were maybe a little shorter than I’m used to in the US, but there were plenty of big guys just as tall and taller than me.

我1米83,我本来以为在那里会鹤立鸡群的。实际上没有,那里最矮的人,可能就比我在美国见到的稍微矮一点点,但还有很多人是跟我差不多高的,甚至有比我还高的。

I’m wondering if the myth of the short Chinaman ever had any grounding in fact. Or maybe it was just due to the generally low standard of nutrition in China proper at the time when the West was forming its stereotypes, so your average Chinese person didn’t grow as tall as their genes allowed had they been on a good diet since childhood.

我在想,那个关于中国人都是矮个子的神话传说,是不是有现实的依据。或者可能在西方形成偏见的时候,中国人的营养水平普遍都很低,从孩提时代起,他们吃的就不好,没法长到基因允许的高度。

Whatever the reason, these are the facts: when you get a couple of generations of good nutrition into people of Chinese ethnicity - which is what’s happened in Singapore - they’re just as tall as Caucasians.

无论什么原因,这就是事实:在中国人中,当几代人都吃的好、营养充足的时候,就像在新加坡的发生的那样,他们就会长得跟白人一样高。

Extreme Confidence.

The most surprising thing about the Chinese I have observed extreme optimism. My take from this race which I will cherish for life is they have indeed found internal peace/calm/harmony.

非常的自信。

我观察过的中国人中,最让我惊讶的方面,就是极度的乐观。在这个民族身上,我发现他们真的找到了内心中的那份和平、宁静、和谐,这会促使我更珍惜眼前的生活。

I also found internal happiness, I did not see even one unhappy, sad face and a malnutrition Chinese person or a kid.

我也发现了中国人内心的那种幸福,我没遇到过不开心的人,也没看过忧伤的脸,更没看到过营养不良的大人或者小孩。

I have no idea is it Buddhist teaching /or blend of Taoism/or Confucianism/or Chinese conventional wisdom/or Community living and support/or Family support/. What is the magic which keeps them going?

这种幸福的存在,我不知道是什么原因,可能是佛教的教义,可能是道教的融合,可能是儒家的教导,可能是中国人的传统智慧,可能是群体的生活和支援,也可能是家庭的支撑。到底是什么样的魔力,让他们继续前行的呢?

One thing per sure, be it a janitor on the street to higher up the ladder, they take their Karma, very seriously. It appears to me, somehow they are wired to understand: God has put them in this role might as well play very well. And that is the total sum total of message of God.

有一件事情是可以肯定的,无论是大街上的门卫,还是社会的上层人物,他们都非常认真地对待他们的因果报应。在我看来,他们好像都明白这一点:是老天爷把他们放到了这个人生角色中,他们要尽力扮演好这个角色。一切都是老天爷的旨意。

I have not seen even one beggar. However, I have seen some disabled persons not begging but entertaining to give you something in return for your generosity. Their bodies have some severe disabilities but their souls are full of pride.

It appears to me, they are saying: Tomorrow is going to be better than today, and that is thing keeps me going to China to recharge my batteries.

我甚至没看过乞丐。当然,我看过一些残疾人,他们不是在乞讨,他们是在愉悦你,他们是在对你的慷慨作出回报。他们的身体可能有严重的残疾,但是他们的内心充满着骄傲。

我似乎看到,他们在说:明天肯定会比今天要好的。这也是让我不断去中国旅游充电的原因。

    这位 印度大叔,差不多就得了,我们80年代打开国门时也是各种精日精欧美,现在回头看其实挺可笑。一个大国国民的基本素质,就是要有文化自信。当然,印度在这方面……我看九成的人是自大自负,一成不到的人是自卑,就没点正常的
