    Stereotype: The assumption and belief that all members of a particular group (in your case, "Asians") act and behave in the same or similar manner.

    All Asians are NOT fast. To be honest, "fast" is not an adjective I would typically use to describe Chinese. I live in China and I see them all the time. People in large cities appear to have a faster lifestyle, but that doesn't ring true for everyone.

    I live in a smaller city and our pace of life is slower.

    I've never been to the Philippines, so I can't comment on speed patterns there.

    Wow. How many filipino-bashers are there, just in the answer? O_O

    I mean, I've got nothing against filipinos. I've never met a native filipino, so I can't really comment on what the previous people said. But still, is there a need for bashing? D:

    And back to your question: uh, that's...kinda maybe really stereotypical.

    Not ALL Asians are fast (and tbh, I haven't seen many Asians be "fast"). Just like not all...Americans are lazy (can't think of any other stereotype right now, I don't mean to offend you my US friends ^^) or Chinese people are...stingy.

    "the way we act compared to other races?" Hello, sounding a bit racist yourself there!

    So to sum up, I don't think there's a reason why Asians are fast 0.o because not everyone is. It depends on the person, really...where they live (city as opposed to rural), how they were raised, etc etc.

    Source(s): Chinese born and raised in a western country.

    In the big cities like Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, Singerpoor, etc, life pace are relatively fast. But go to a medium or small Chinese city such as Chengdu, Guilin... to see, people take a walk to work.

    Not always. In Hong Kong, it's true. But I haven't been to each and every Asian country in the world, so I can't say for sure that all Asians are the way you described.
