"Why does the power of Asian parenting seem so intuitive to Asians and non-Asians alike? The reason, most probably, is that people make a big distinction between intelligence, where they admit that heredity plays a major role, and character, which they imagine is entirely environmental. They're very wrong to make this distinction. Not only do genes have a strong effect on character, but upbringing does not." (01/10/11)
