I hate making generalizations, but I'm going to do it. Asians are just like everyone else, some smart, some dumb. The key to their high ratio success is WORK ETHIC. If you work hard to perfect something that you do, even if you have no natural talent at it, you are bound to get good. From my 8 years + of being very close to the Asian community, I have yet to see a group of people who are as dedicated as they. Their true intelligence lies in the secret of hard work.
