Opinion: American mentality gives odds to immigrants in the fight for career growth
Author of the channel "Alex Zel" on "Yandex.Zen" offers to talk about the peculiarities of the American mentality and gives a simple example, which, in his opinion, shows that the peculiarities of the American approach to work give a head start to immigrants in the struggle for promotion and achievement of great success. Further - from the first person.
Everything is much more complex and extensive, but for me at this stage of my life this moment plays one of the key roles, which is why I pay attention to it.
You know, Americans can very well and easily find you an example that they once taught them.
Let's say you ask them what 3 x 3 is, and they easily answer that 9. But if you ask what 3 + 3 + 3 is, then there will be problems.
Most likely, you will not receive an answer.
Two main features of Americans follow from this:
1. They are well versed in what they learned, but it is difficult for them to be creative in solving the same problems with a different approach.
2. They know and believe what they are told, but they do not understand or are not trying to understand why this is so. They just don't need it. After all, they have already been thought for and given the final result.
Of course, there are exceptions and, of course, there are other features and examples. However, knowing this particular feature, it is easier for many foreigners to jump the Americans up the career ladder in their own territory.
