Holistic Intelligence ability to think holistically systemic action Vadim Kotelnikov  

In general, Chinese people are intrinsically better at holistic thinking than Americans.


Language is the difference that makes the difference because the language we think in influences the way we think.




English language is linear. The standard order of words in a sentence is strict: subject + verb + object. The linear structure of each sentence makes Americans stronger at linear thinking.

The Chinese language is different. It is image-based. Each Chinese character is visual and holistic, like a painting. The holistic nature of characters makes Chinese people stronger in holistic thinking.




Just look at my Chinese name 'Wei Di' (Great Emperor) that the government of Shanghai gave me.

You can easily see that Chinese characters communicate the meaning holistically while English words are just a sequence of letters. →


My Chinese name 'Wei Di'
is a derivative from 'Vadim'.
It means 'Great Emperor'
