When I was a kid, stereotypes were used heavily in humor, and stereotypes of people from foreign countries were especially common. Japanese people always had cameras, German people were gruff, French people were rude. Americans were fat, lazy, messy, loud, and uneducated.

Joshua Gross, CSUMB计算机科学助理教授:
在我小时候,很多刻板印象经常被拿来开玩笑,对外国人的刻板印象尤其普遍。比如日本人都有相机,德国人脾气大,法国人很粗鲁,美国人肥胖、懒惰、邋遢、吵闹、没有文化。


If you look at standardized exams for other countries, they emphasize rigor. However, that’s their focus: rigor. Not creative or lateral thinking. Not critical thinking. Not problem solving. Japanese students have been demonstrated to know more about US geography than American students in some random tests, and that’s frustrating, but memorizing geographical facts has little bearing on life. Students in many Asian countries are required to rapidly perform multicolumn multiplication, but they don’t demonstrate a deeper understanding of arithmetic reasoning than American students; they just learn useful ways to perform calculations.

你可以看看其他国家的标准化考试,他们强调严谨性。然而,那就是他们的重点:严谨。没有创造性、横向思维,没有批判性思维,不解决问题。在一些随机测试中,日本学生对美国地理的了解超过了美国学生,这确实令人沮丧,但记住地理对生活没什么用。许多亚洲国家的学生被要求快速地计算多项乘法,但他们对运算推理的理解并不比美国学生深刻,他们只是学了一些有用的计算方法。
