Is the superiority complex wrong

Superiority complex of descendants and Japanese

Have you noticed some descendants or Japanese feel superior? Do they seem arrogant and biased? You weren't the only one who realized this. In this article, we're going to look at the complex issue of superiority.

I'm a little scared to write articles like this because people can't Thinking and reason that when I talk about something I don't mean all of them but one small percentage.

If you are a descendant or Japanese and do not fit the review of this article, congratulations! Please do not think that I am criticizing the offspring, I am even a little jealous. This is just a constructive criticism of the attitude of something.

I hate it when people read my article and interpret it in general terms. I hate generalizations and hate it when people use the terms "Japanese" to criticize prejudice, racism, the cold, suicide, and the like.

I am speaking of descendants and Japanese with the aim of achieving cultural understanding rather than criticism. The superiority complex is common in every nationality.

Hope you read this article openly and to the end, so don't think that I am criticizing Japanese descendants. This article is a self-analysis to find out if everyone has this attitude, whether or not they are descendants.

Who should he write about it? If this is what you've asked yourself, then you already have a superiority complex and are acting arrogantly because humble people accept or at least hear advice, no matter who it is. And even if they don't like the criticism, they don't go out there and talk shit afterward.

Can only descendants and Japanese have this arrogance or superiority complex? Of course not! So this article is for everyone to think about!

How did this superiority complex come about?

To understand how this arrogance of the descendants came about, we need to analyze that it is due to the mixture of Japanese and Brazilian cultures. Japan has a strong Hierarchy and nationalism Brazil already has a strong tone of in its culture Freedom and individualism.

For those who don't know who Superiority complex It is a need to feel superior to anything or everyone. The following list of points highlights the symptoms of a person with this complex:

  • Habit of feeling better than others and boasting about it;
  • Need to downsize and downsize people, point out shortcomings and make comparisons;
  • Distorted view of their values ​​and skills;
  • Arrogance, envy, selfishness;
  • You care too much about the opinion of others;
  • After conquests he runs too far and tries to show them off;
  • Excessive perfectionism;
  • Need to justify or correct;
  • Difficulty receiving criticism and recognizing its mistakes;

These are some of the symptoms of people with a superiority complex. Now ask yourself if I go with these things. Do I have to improve points?

The origin of the Japanese supremacy complex

When I examined the subject, I found that among the Japanese there is a superiority complex and an inferiority complex at the same time. The superiority complex in Japan is very strong, if not the strongest of all nationalities, but at the same time they are subject to an intense inferiority complex.

Apparently, the traditional Japanese superiority complex derives from the ancient mythological belief that Japan was created by divine beings and that the Japanese themselves were descendants of these superior creatures.

When the first Westerners came to Japan, the Japanese were even more convinced of their superiority, especially in social and cultural activities. To the Japanese, the Westerners were like savages and uncivilized barbarians.

Nowadays questions about prejudice against Westerners are much debated, although personally I find a great exaggeration and note that the problems of the superiority complex arise with the Japanese themselves, and not just because the person is Japanese or not.

In some cases, offspring suffer more prejudice than non-descent foreigners. Japanese are not xenophobic, they just don't like people who don't respect their culture and thinking, or who pride themselves on being different from others.

Do you now imagine Brazilian descendants who grew up in Brazil and who enjoy freedom?

Arrogance of Japanese descendants

Why did I choose to quote the arrogance and superiority complex of Japanese and non-Japanese descendants? Well I decided to write this article after seeing how much shit has been commented on on social networks like:

Reading these comments, I came to the conclusion that the descendants have the absolute truth because they live in Japan and they know everything. It is the same to say: teacher I know more about the history of Europe because I lived there, you never lived there!

They completely forget that there is such a thing as relativity and different realities. They don't accept hearing opinions that contradict theirs because they always want to be right. And when someone speaks without ancestry, they get even angrier.

Some feel better in Japan and believe that only they can have this right. They are proud because they live in Japan but know nothing about culture, behavior and anything that helps to contribute to the country. In the end, they create an environment that is equal to Brazil.

This ignorant attitude is likely the result of the anger experienced by descendants in Brazil. Suppose you are an offspring and someone comes to say: do you eat dogs? Is Japanese all the same? Why do you only date Japanese? Why don't you go to japan Flango pastel ...

These questions infuriate descendants and Japanese living in Brazil, creating the inferiority complex that leads to superiority complex. As always, the Brazilians are responsible for these prejudiced stereotypes.

Descendancy complex of superiority in Brazil

I don't live with Japanese descendants much (because I don't have them here) but some friends of mine who have no descendants complain about a certain prejudice because they are Brazilian and are in a circle or community related to Brazil with culture Japanese.

Sometimes I even think that the stereotype that the Japanese are prejudiced is not due to the Japanese in Japan, but to the immigrants and descendants who lived in Brazil. Some with a frown and very bad mood. Not without reason, as unfortunately most of the descendants or Japanese who came to Brazil have suffered and still suffer from prejudice from Brazilians.

In Japan, I spent a lot of time among descendants and Japanese, and noticed that the Japanese were much happier. Some descendants have already made critical comments (poor thing) that I stayed for a week with a Japanese family they were friends with, but it was one of the best weeks I've had.

Japanese colonies in Brazil usually like to walk between them. They don't like to mix and match and want to keep their purity. I even understand and would probably do the same, but never in prejudice or when I think I am superior to others as it happens in something Cases. I believe that the offspring feel comfortable in their group because they avoid prejudice against Brazilians.

When looking for information, some find that the descendants are extremely unfriendly, even in tourist areas like Liberdade. Although some may imagine I am talking about the older of the old, in reality I see many young people mainly joining the current rebellion that they have acquired.

I follow a number of Japanese and descendants on social media and can see their attitudes and the way they usually act. I can clearly see that young offspring tend to expose themselves much more as superiors than Japanese or older offspring.

Quiet because some will generalize

I think it's good to make it clear that I'm talking about a minoritybecause people like to take my comments literally. If you've never noticed this setting, it's very visible!

There are a lot of good and cozy offspring, I have had good experiences among them, but do not try to deny that there are no offspring with a superiority complex or who do not have at least one of the points mentioned in the article.

Not to mention that the Brazilians are also vastly superior to many nationalities. When nationalism is strong, humility is zero, the chances of a person with a superiority complex are very high.

Years go by and this nationality superiority complex is decreasing. Sometimes the inferiority complex gets bigger, mainly with the westernization of the Japanese.
