On the Elusive Nature of High Chinese Achievement
van de Vijver, Fons J. R.
Learning and Individual Differences, v20 n6 p574-576 Dec 2010
It is argued that Stankov's proposal to view unforgivingness as underlying the combination of high educational achievement, anxiety, and self-doubt is an original way of summarizing Confucian score patterns. However, it is argued that the proposal cannot explain why reading scores in Confucian countries are not higher than in other countries and that an empirical study to test the proposal is difficult to conduct as it would require the involvement of many different countries.
