Understanding Trust, In China and the West

This is a post from Harvard Business Review in 2015. It tackles into the extremely relevant side of Chinese society and ecosystem. This discussion based on trust is the fundamental difference between western societies and the Chinese one.

The depth it dug into is beyond the scope of normal Chinese interpersonal networks. Chinese themselves don’t understand these things and they do it unconsciously. And it is how they are raised mostly in this country. ...READ MORE

On Behalf of the Inevitable Proceeding of Lying Myself into a College

Guess it really leaves me no choice to do so.

I have been against doing this the whole time but the robotic and stupid system forced me to do so.

I have been contacting Langara College for weeks for my high school graduation and transcript, which I don’t really have, to spare me the process of these documents.

I presented them my work, my resume, called them several times, emailed all the contacts I have from that school, did all I can… ...READ MORE

Democracy in Canada

During my time stay in Canada, I witnessed a landscape with extraordinary sceneries, well organized systems of infrastructures and the embarrassing situation of the homeless.

For me, the west seems like a free land of all sorts of ideologies, and I don’t want to stress the term ideology much, as I’d like to think of the west has a democratic approach to groups of people in a society, and how, from that, a society flourishes. ...READ MORE

Cognitive bias is this type of bias, that has real evidence and proof to support it.

You can’t debate the fact that there are details and evidence to support their compromised veracity. ...READ MORE

On Leadership, and Dissection of Homeless Situation in Montreal

Whenever one talks about leadership, we think of a person walking in the front of all.

There are, many types of leaderships. This time, I want to document someone who is contagious, charismatic, persistent and intelligent.

Her way of leading almost reminds me of a rather original way of leading.

An old man in ancient China tried to remove a mountain in front of his house. He started by his own, and slowly, his action and motive attracted even more people to do the same thing and join his cause. All because this person kept doing it. Whilst you are consistently doing something, with a goal that is honorable or justifiable, people will hear your voice and subsequently join. ...READ MORE

The Perfect Meritocracy?

Earlier in time I wrote about how to create an ideal meritocracy system, a society where inheritance system is eliminated, people are rewarded as what they are capable of and… And I stopped there, I couldn’t figure out the rest of it–How do you even eliminate inheritance system first? In order to achieve equality for all?

But… could communism be the perfect meritocracy model for everyone? ...READ MORE

The Wanting Itself Is Attractive

Real world has all types of temptations, money, power, women and fame.

To ordinary people, these things are always desirable.

However, it’s the wanting itself being attractive, not the objects being inherently attractive.

We realize our values onto things we want, thus they are attractive.

Money, power, women and fame, are all heavily valued by most people.

When one object gets much value, it becomes desirable. ...READ MORE
