About Norman...

Hi, I am from Singapore and I am a History teacher.

At this moment, I am very interested in cultural intelligence so that I can better see how culture influences a country's historical development. Therefore, it would be deeply appreciated if you could share about your country's national characteristics or unique traits of your people.

For example, Singaporeans are said to be kiasu. It literally means 'scared to lose'. It is a national trait which demonstrates our fear of 'losing out' hence we are very determined to seize on opportunities when they present themselves. This explains why our country is so determined to achieve high standards of excellence.
