From Chhay Lin Lim: ‘How And Why Asians And Westerners Think Differently’

Part I here

Part II here

Worth a read.

‘I have been reading this interesting book of Prof. Richard Nisbett, entitled The Geography of Thought: How Asians and Westerners think differently… and why (2003). Nisbett is a Professor of social psychology at the University of Michigan and has written several books and articles on cognitive processes, intelligence and how the environment is an important determinant of IQ and differences in world perceptions.’

He distills Nisbett’s arguments into an easy-to-read table format.
