What We Chinese People Lack


There’s a popular saying that, “One Chinese is a dragon, while a group of Chinese would be an insect.” That’s an opinion from foreigners.

Yes, I totally agree with this point. Chinese people usually lack spirit of team work.

When they work alone, he will pay much attention to what he’s doing. He cares about people’s attitude towards him. So he will try his best to finish it. But when they work together, in a team, they get lost. They begin to forget their existence. They forget what they should continue doing. Besides themselves, there’re so many others. They become lazy and think someone else is the only person who can make the dream come true . When the team need some of them to do something, they will try to escape. They are scared of making all efforts. They fear of sacrifices.

They just want to enjoy others’ achievements. Not only ordinary people, but also so-called elites. Especially among MBA students, they don’t show good awareness of teamwork. Oppositely, they show bad habits, just like illiterates. They are thinking about how to steal other people’s findings. They are considering about how to cheat in the test.

For example, some of them are absent or say nothing when the case study is going on. They just keep silence and give the chance of contribution to others. They want to be on the passing list. They want to get the scores in the final. They just need to get the degree. Results are what they care a lot about. As for the study process, they don’t think it’s necessary.

It’s a pity that they forget they should be professional. They should have been different from other people.

They want to be high quality. They want to be in the top class.

Till now, in my opinion, they are still too low. It’s terrible to work with this kind of people.

Thousands of years flies, we still play ugly like this. What a sorrowful thing!

To be a great people, the Chinese still need to do a lot on the growing up road. If we want real respect from other countries.
